I verified by installing FC2 at home.
It's the FC eula, and it cancels installation.

I don't think it's okay, anyway:

2.  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.  The Software and each of its
    components, including the source code, documentation, appearance,
    structure and organization are copyrighted by Fedora Project and
    others and are protected under copyright and other laws.  Title to
    the Software and any component, or to any copy, modification, or
    merged portion shall remain with the aforementioned, subject to
    the applicable license.  The "Fedora" trademark is a trademark of
    Red Hat, Inc. ("Red Hat") in the U.S. and other countries and is
    used by permission.  This agreement permits User to distribute
    unmodified copies of Software using the Fedora trademark on the
    condition that User follows Red Hat's trademark guidelines located
    at http://fedora.redhat.com/legal.  User must abide by these
                                        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    trademark guidelines when distributing the Software, regardless of
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    whether the Software has been modified.  If User modifies the
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Software, then User must replace all images containing the
    "Fedora" trademark.  Those images are found in the anaconda-images
    and the fedora-logos packages.  Merely deleting these files may
    corrupt the Software.

I think at least this add restrictions... which is a violation of all
the GPL and LGPL software included in FC2.

Probably, because TM and CR laws are independant of each other, it could
be ok if the formulation changed to:

    at http://fedora.redhat.com/legal.  User must abide by these
    trademark guidelines when distributing the Software unmodified.
