Following this discussion:
it was suggested that I alert the good folks on this list.
To summarize the situation: a couple of days ago, George Douros
updated a number of his fonts and at the same time he placed them
under a new, restrictive license (until now, these fonts were in the
Public Domain). You can see all that here:
This affects the following packages:
The takeaway of a long discussion I had with him is that he does not
want to remove the non-commercial clause of his license text (or any
of the other restrictions), but at the same time he does not mind us
carrying and redistributing the fonts, which is contradictory to say
In his last message he said that he would be open to negotiating
another license with Fedora. I think I have exhausted any goodwill I
might have had with him over the years and I'm not fit to discuss this
issue any further with him. If anyone feels this is a goal worth
pursuing, that's how things stand at the moment.
Good day, everyone.
I have a few questions about some things I'm doing for the Fedora Live SIG that I started a week ago.
Firstly, are SIGs allowed to have their own branding?
The reason I'm asking this is that since this is a very livestream oriented SIG, am I allowed to provide a kit containing stream cards that would be shown from time to time. Another reason I'm asking this is that is it alright for me to use the fedora logo as shown in the image below:
Secondly, what is the policy on domains?
Am I allowed to register, say, `fedoralive.streams` and then redirect it back to the SIG wiki page to make it easier to publicize the SIG?
Thank you for taking the time to answer this.

There is a game package "paintown" ; pushed to stable F28, currently in updates-testing for F27 . I installed the game from updates-testing and noticed that the game seems to use copyrighted assets - it features characters from franchises such as Street Fighter, Marvel comics, and Dragon Ball. While I'm not 100% certain if the assets themselves are copyrighted - it's possible they are not ripped from other games, but rather fan-made spritesheets - I'm pretty sure that the use of the characters themselves constitutes as infringement. As such, I think the package should be pulled before it causes us any legal troubles.
