[Foundation] Jabber Name - Free Speech Issue

Another interesting twist to keep in mind while we hash out this Jabber
brand issue...  What if someone creates a "Jabber Porn" client that sends
XXX pictures via Jabber servers, and it gets really popular?  Even if the
product is called "JabPorn - Powered by Jabber!" - this could damage j.c.'s
brand name and reputation.

Are there going to be guidelines in place to prevent this?   Can Porno be
Jabber Powered?  Can the lightbulb be drawn alittle raunchier ?!

Would Jabber.Com prevent free speech / expression over this supposedly open,
internet standard protocol?
