The post is shocking to me because it appears that StreamBase was blatantly abusing and violating the Apama trademark in a Google Adsense marketing campaign.
I find this hard to believe, and wonder if someone else, not StreamBase, was actually running this Adsense campaign. I cannot imagine StreamBase doing something so ethically and legally wrong; and hope that what we are seeing is an attack on StreamBase’s integrity and not an actual Adsense campaign by StreamBase.
From a legal perspective, StreamBase is liable for any loss of business or damages to Progress by wilfully violating the Apama trademark.
Frankly speaking, if StreamBase was responsible for this Adsense campaign memorialized in Chris’ post, then StreamBase owes Apama, at a minimum, a public apology.
