Deserter Foundation

PV-Magazine just published some quotes from a Desertec Industrial Initiative spokesman.

From that I learn that the Desertec Foundation didn’t even notify the Industrial Initiative about their decision to leave. The Industrial Initiative learned about this by reading it in the newspaper.

I hear that the Desertec Foundation wants to stir up further trouble, insisting that the Industrial Initiative changes their name, asserting trade mark ownership in the name “Desertec”.

I agree completely that it would be unfortunate if people confused the Industrial Initiative, which is actually doing some useful work, with the Foundation.

However, the proper remedy would seem to be to change the name of the Foundation.

Deserter Foundation would be much more fitting.
