Peter Moon had posted this to the Connecticut Valley Chapter-SLA list.  I
thought Medlib would find this valuable information.

> Subject:      use of the term "listserv"
>      There is a column in the November 1998 issue of CRLC Update
>      referencing Rob Carlson, ALA Internet Services Coordinator.
>      The Capital Region Library Council urges its members to not make
>      reference to the term "LISTSERV", other than as a registered
> trademark
>      of L-Soft International, Inc.  It is not to be used generically to
>      describe a distribution list or discussion list.
>      So just like Xerox and Kleenex before them, L-Soft Intl is watching
>      out to retain the use of their registered intellectual property.
>      Please review all your web files, instruction sheets, etc., and
> change
>      all references from "listserv" to either just "list" or "discussion
>      list", or "distribution list".
