Mozilla Branding Strategy Clarifies Naming of Mozilla Projects and Products

Friday April 25th, 2003

FrodoB writes: "Christopher Blizzard has published to mozilla.org an article entitled Mozilla Branding Strategy, which clarifies the position of mozilla.org on naming of the application suite and the separate applications in milestone 1.4 and beyond. Essentially, the application suite is to be called 'Mozilla Application Suite' with individual names 'Mozilla Navigator', 'Mozilla Mail/News', and so on. The Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird names are simply codenames, and the resulting products will be referred to as 'Mozilla Browser' and 'Mozilla Mail'."

In order for a new version of Phoenix to be released, it had to be given a name that did not legally infringe on another product. Firebird really still is the name of the product. That has not changed with the clarification.

Do I really have to go around clarifying the clarification? Wasn't it clear enough the first time around???
