Reading comprehension for the win.  I said "regardless of how *legal*
it is".  Meaning: I do not care that CentOS is in compliance with a
legal requirement to remove trademark information, I do not care that
they are breaking no laws, infringing on no copyrights.  I care that
they pass off Red Hat's work as their own product.  In fact, they were
illegally using the Red Hat name on their website to encourage (one
could argue inform) users to download the software in lieu of using
RHEL.  Red Hat got some lawyers involved and CentOS stopped doing it.

If this isn't as "abundantly clear" to you, then I simply can't
educate you or you're being deliberately obtuse to try and prove a
point (that is irrelavent to what I'm saying).
