--- Comment #15 from doark at mail.com ---
"1.4 Notwithstanding Sections 1.1 through 1.3 above, Recipient shall not have
the right or license to create, use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute,
sell, or license the Power ISA Core in a physically implemented chip (including
a microprocessor, system on a chip, or a field-programmable gate array (FPGA))
that is not Power Compliant, nor to license others to do so."

I agree that this is overbroad. We might want to design our own cores with IP.
I recommend that an exception of some sort be made for open-source projects.

"7.1 Nothing contained in these terms shall be construed as conferring any
right to use in advertising, publicity or other promotional activities any
name, trade name, trademark or other designation of any Party hereto (including
any contraction, abbreviation or simulation of any of the foregoing)."

So if I sell a CPU with the power arch I can't say what's inside when
advertising? Or did I misread this?
