It is through laws adopted by those governments that individuals gain rights with respect to other individuals.

As far as I can tell, TTn has not filed any documents with the government which are required to establish any property rights in the 15k Search project.

De facto, he does have limited copyrights in some communications. However, I don't see how those rights would preclude ANYONE from continuing the project.

If he has filed for, and obtained, specific trademark or similar rights, he needs to state so and refer us to the legally recorded documents which demonstrate those grants. Otherwise, he is just ranting and, as a fool, his hot air signifies nothing more.
