Hello. 

I've been using postgresql for two years now, and someone recently asked 
me some questions about it which stumped me.  Could anyone on the list 
point me to the answers to these questions:

1) PostgreSQL is copyright the "PostgreSQL Global Development Group."  
What is the "PostgreSQL Global Development Group"?  Is it a non-profit, 
a company, or some other kind of entity?

2) Does the "PostgreSQL Global Development Group" own the source code of 
PostgreSQL and release it under the BSD license?

3) Does it also own the "PostgreSQL" trademark?  Or is "PostgreSQL" 
trademarked?

4) I noticed there is also a PostgreSQL, Inc. in Canada, and they 
provide the servers and facilities for the postgresql project.  Other 
than that, are they just another consulting/support organization for 
PostgreSQL, or are they also the main organizers/sponsors of the project?

Thanks,

Si Chen
