Also Red Hat's Trademarked artwork.  Since I haven't seen a copy of RHEL
this is going by the License agreement.

http://www.redhat.com/licenses/

The distribution also includes the IBM® Java Development Kit ("JDK"),
which is software licensed to Customer from IBM Corporation, hereinafter,
the "IBM Programs". For the precise terms of the license for these IBM
Programs, please check the on-line documentation that accompanies them or
review the license at http://www.redhat.com/licenses/jdk_ibm.html. If
Customer does not agree to abide by the applicable license terms for these
IBM Programs, then Customer may not install them. If Customer wishes to
install these IBM programs on more than one computer, then Customer must
contact IBM to purchase additional licenses.
