Re: An official trademark policy for CheapBytes-type RHL CDs?

AFAIR Red Hat's big issue with alternate provider CD's having the Red Hat name/logo on them was that they(Red Hat) were getting too many consumers expecting free tech support with their "official" disc's. Please correct me if I am wrong on this.


I don't have a particular vested interest in this issue (I neither buy nor sell Linux CD's in this manner) and am only speaking up to clarify a point.
