I think that the problem is that Use of the Fedora Logo needs to be
'authorised'. Of Course, people are allowed to sell `Fedora Core` for
as much as they want (as long as they do not violate GPL).
No. We dont need to authorize each and every instance. We can setup
guidelines just like we have the trademark guidelines and ask anyone who
wants to redistribute Fedora CD's and use the logos to go through these
guidelines and follow them. The current guidelines available
But how much money are we really going to get out of them?
We dont really need money from anyone who merely redistributes Fedora
without any modifications as long as they follow the very reasonable
guidelines put forward. We can request them to contribute to Fedora
Foundation (remember its a non-profit and the amount can only used for
Fedora) say a fixed percentage of sales returns in exchange for vendor
listings and joint promotions perhaps but thats not absolutely necessary
if they want to just do things on their own.
