The White Box name?

Since I have had a phone conversation with Matt where he said I could keep using the name White Box if I put a S&W compatibility logo on the cover; does anyone know if that can be changed by him later? Could he effectively call me a year from now and tell me I can no longer use it?

Not a lawyer, but Matt is, so...

I could be mistaken, but I thought once a license of this sort is issued, and you properly reference it, it's a done deal. Matt can change his license all he wants, but it then becomes another license entirely. Maybe someone with some legal experience can verify that.

I can't imagine Matt would be so underhanded anyway. Why not just ask him?

True. Worth noting and thinking about.

(Also) IANAL, but agreed. I'd imagine that as long as you adhere to only what the current license 'asks'/'demands' that's that.
Perhaps I'm wrong. If you asked my girlfriend that would seemingly be an alien experience for me but (shhh), it's not.

Yeah, I just ended up asking Matt. It can not be revoked.
