I'm going to pull the usual and ask you to read the list archives, where
this has been beaten to death. Red Hat has a trademark of Shadowan, of a
man wearing a fedora hat. Red Hat has to defend that trademark in order
to continue to be allowed to own the trademark. That's trademark law.



So why can't Red Hat defend the same on Fedora(TM)? I have no problem with that. After all, they _do_ lay claim to the trademark and they _do_ define it's guidelines on use.

Fedora trademark guidelines are meant to be more a lot more flexible than the Red Hat or Shadow man ones. So we need to cleanly seperate them from each other. This is one of the reasons the name was changed into Fedora from Red Hat Linux Project.
