In this case the site is half-done and can't be taken very seriously
by anyone who has already visited vorbis.com. By contrast, mp3.com
have clearly invested a great deal of time and money.
The problem is people who haven't visited the official site and guess
at what the URL is. We notice this a lot with LinuxUser magazine,
although it tends to work in our favour, since we bought domain names
for nearly all possible guesses at our true URL.

Perhaps all non-official sites should be asked to add the following
text to their homepages:
OggSQUISH, Ogg Vorbis, Xiphophorus, the Xiphophorus Fish Logo, the
Thor-and-the-Snake logo and the Laser-Playback-Head-of-Omniscience
logo are trademarks of the Xiph.org Foundation. The official site of
Ogg Vorbis is at http://www.vorbis.com
If they refuse, or just don't bother, they can be considered hostile.
