Not sure. Parts of it are certainly something that trademark could
apply to. [I think it's ok if it was "works with Ubuntu One", but the
"Ubuntu One client" may be probablematic.]
This is something that should be worked out with the Ubuntu One
developers and/or Ubuntu people. So long as we and all of our
downstream have the ability to exercise the rights guaranteed by the
DFSG via a trademark grant (or probably even just e-mail communication
to that effect), it should be redistributable in main. [Indeed, it may
even be the case for #564276 as well.]
Let me get an Ubuntu person to weigh in on this.
