 @psykro Sure or read it in the code

 > Your chosen plugin name - %1$s - contains the restricted term "%2$s" and
 cannot be used to begin your permalink or display name. Per the
 requirements of trademark owners and law, we disallow the use of certain
 terms in ways that are infringing and/or misleading. In order to proceed
 with this submission, you must change the %3$s line in your main plugin
 file and readme to end with  "-%2$s" instead. Once you\'ve finished, you
 may upload the plugin again. If you feel this is in error, such as you
 legally own the trademarked term, please email us at %4$s and explain why.
