this looks rather weird to me.
Orlando Scrum as it operated until this spring is no more. After reviewing my other commitments and a request to sign a licensing agreement with Scrum Alliance I am ending my involvmet with the group. Today I received an email from Scrum Alliance asking me to sign and agree to a licensing document for a logo they created for Orlando Scrum users group.
I am not aware of any request for Scrum Alliance to do this for us. Additionally, they have laid claim to the mark “Scrum User Group”. As this is/was a volunteer effort and Scrum Alliance is making such requests of a legal nature, I am discontinuing my involvement in what was Orlando Scrum.
even though, they recognized later on this was kind of bad communication:
Do not let this licensing agreement hinder or stop you from meeting as an organized group of Scrum users. If you do not wish your local user group to be registered as a Scrum Alliance Scrum User Group then there is no need for you to sign a licensing agreement with the Scrum Alliance.
instantly thinking of that scene from “Life of Brian”…
