Worries

Animosity The universities which will be ranked/graded in time will be the ones that have SFC chapters (for the vast majority). As such, will we be enemies of the universities? Will they be supportive of our goals if they are getting Cs, Ds and Fs? --This could be solved through bronze, silver and gold stars for each criteria... less adversarial.

Trademark Worry Yes, it (and derivatives) are trademarked, but I think our designation/campaign might be legal because the specifications of the trademarks seem to be fairly limited to things besides a political campaign. Here's the Trademark Search(broken link). Or we could consider other branding: "Free Culture Accredited University" or something else.
