Is this really so difficult to understand?

"Inc" (or "Incorporated") is a term used in the US (and also in the UK) to designate legal status as a corporation. In legalese, as seen in the copyright notice, the Consortium is being referred to as "Unicode, Inc.". But colloquially we all refer to it as the Unicode Consortium. These are, of course, one and the same.

Do people also spend time wondering if "Virgin Airways" and "Virgin Atlantic Airways Limited" are different entities?

That page has several mentions of Unicode Consortium and then has a copyright notice mentioning Unicode, Inc., without in any way defining the relationship between the two names, as to whether they are two different entities or two names for the same entity.
What is the situation please?
