These sorts of licenses are usually a mess to figure out. It would help
if we knew whether Ion considers Notion to be a "name that can
be associated with the Ion project".
Yes, I can appreciate your apprehension. I found the following thread on
the notion devel list that discusses receiving an e-mail and relaxed
license from Tuomo Valkonen (developer of Ion) for the Notion project:
This would indicate to me that Tuomo considers Notion sufficiently
distinct. Is this good enough?
I don't think so. The email quoted from Tuomo is two years older than
the repost, so it is unlikely that it is in the context of Notion (also,
he never mentions Notion in it). I'm guessing he sent it out to the Ion
mailing list independently of Notion's existence (possibly before Notion
came about? not sure on the timeline), but we cannot assume it implies
acceptability of the Notion name.
Really, someone needs to ask politely. :)
