I see. I also notice that "TIFF" has never been a registered trademark of Aldus or Adobe (or Microsoft) so Adobe never registered it in the country where they are headquartered. Aldus and Microsoft do not appear to have claimed a trademark in 1988. What modifications should users and supporters of the format make to their behavior in order to continue using "TIFF" as they were before?
Would it be possible for Adobe to issue a new edition of the TIFF specification which updates the URLs and email contact information to valid addresses, as well as includes Chris Cox's draft additions?
