Absolutely a legitimate problem, I think - in addition to the fact that  
the Zope trademark isn't owned by the Zope Foundation. (Look out for the  
new J2EE Zope technology once the value of the Zope brand exceeds the  
assets of Zope Corp).

As an aside, this posting in the comments on Slashdot was hilarious:

Announcing: Ploen

Ploen is an out-of-the-box ready VoIP system that is built on the powerful  
and free Zoep client-side VoIP engine. It requires minimal effort to set  
up, is deeply flexible, and provides you with a system for managing VoIP  
that is ideal for project groups, communities and intranets.

And it goes 0 - 60 mph in 5 seconds, as you can see from the Ploen site.



Certainly made my day :D
