1)	Don't trust Press releases that are set up by enemies (FhG in this case)
	I don't want to go into details, but from a legal point of view
	GMD is not jet FhG!

2)	This is a discussion triggered by a WIDI poll some days ago.
	If you like to have a fair discussion, you should rather check the
	legal state for this date.

The change to the new name has become valid with 20.7.2001 with a publishing
in "Bonner Generalanzeiger" (Page 20). As I am replying to a mail from

If you like to show that you made ridiculous statements in this
discussion, feel free to write your memo, but I believe we should rather
not start to fight on personal affairs.
