Mambo in trouble

Posted in Content management on May 9th, 2006

It seems like the Mambo Foundation does not own the Mambo Trademarks after all. Mambo Communities Pty Ltd, the original owner of the Mambo forums, help site, development forge, the domain names and the new Mambo Developer Network, has been sold off by Peter Lamont to Ansearch Ltd, an Australian search engine and online media company. This was four months after Miro International Pty Ltd announced that it had transferred the intellectual property it held in Mambo to the Mambo Foundation. Subsequently, member of the Mambo Foundation Board, Martin Brampton, resigned from his position with immediate effect due to what “having become aware that the Board is acting unlawfully”.

    Doesn’t surprice me at all. The whole foundation affair was pretty fishy.
