Just wow...
Way to go groupon a...oles!
 
Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

nie ma to jak poprawnie zaprojektowane strony polskich urzędów….
chce sonbie zmienić adres działalności w CEIDG… i tam jest piękny kreator i wszystko jest super….
aż do momentu gdy dochodzi do takiego pola:
"Dane dotyczące cudzoziemca
Jestem cudzoziemcem, o którym mowa w art. 13 <tu pole wyboru> ustawy o swobodzie działalności gospodarczej."

...i oczywiście nie ma opcji "NIE jestem cudzoziemcem"

Piękne miejsce. Z tarasu widać samą zieleń - żadnych domów, zabudowań, nic :-) Domek świetnie urządzony i wyposażony - idealne miejsce na odpoczynek z rodzinką. Można siedzieć w domku i ogrodzie i rozkoszować się widokami, a można też wybrać się na kilka wycieczek w okoliczne górki. Trochę ciężko tu trafić - dobrze, że jest na mapach :-)
