7A key part of the business model that allows us to produce and

9we restrict the commercial use of the Moodle trademark to those
4e0ebe0a 10who have contracted to support Moodle development (Moodle Partners).

14Moodle Certification, Moodle Training, Moodle Consulting,
15Moodle Customisation, Moodle Courseware Development, Moodle
16Theme design, Moodle Integrations, Moodle Installations, etc)
17or as the name of a software package, then you must seek
