This is not a Fedora video -- it's a video for Red Hat customers in
particular.  The fact that I happen to be in it, explaining the
pipeline, should not obscure that.

Also, I think you should keep in mind that Red Hat's Creative team
produces these videos.  If we were to make videos as part of the
Fedora Marketing team or some other Fedora entity, I would absolutely
want those videos to reflect the licensing we use elsewhere.

NoDerivatives (ND) is a fundamentally sensible license for videos
produced *by a commercial entity*, where there's an interest in
preserving the original intent, message, and brand value of the
content.  In Fedora, on the other hand, we provide resources that
anyone can remix for any purpose, trademarks aside.  What Gianluca was
asking for, the ability to spread this video to other locales, we
could provide through translations as I suggested.
