Moz Back-offs on FeedIcon Trademark

Feeling the pressure of an angry blogosphere, Moz seems to be hinting that it's backing off on the FeedIcon trademark.

Michell Baker, CEO of Moz Corp.: My belief is that trying to have the Mozilla Foundation officially responsible for an icon that is already in use is going to cause angst as well as make it harder to have calm discussions about the RSS icon and the proper role for trademark in community-driven activities. This is counterproductive. 

Frank Hecker, Executive Director of Moz Foundation: I want to personally apologize for any confusion and miscommunication around the issue of the feed icon and our proposals for promoting its use, as well as the delays in getting this issue dealt with.
