Package: desktop-base
Version: 5.0.3
Severity: serious
Distribution: stable
Section: main


This package includes a modified version of the Debian open logo with
"Debian" which the license is not compliant to the Debian policy.

The license of the Debian open logo with "Debian" says:

  "This logo or a modified version may be used by anyone to refer to the
  Debian project, but does not indicate endorsement by the project."

  see http://www.debian.org/logos/index.en.html

whereas the Debian policy §2.1 (aka DFSG) says:

  "Derived Works

    The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must
  allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of
  the original software."

  which is not allowed if the derivative work doesn't refer to Debian

  "No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

    The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program
  in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the
  program from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic

  the license above restricts the way anyone would use the logo with

  "License Must Not Be Specific to Debian

   The rights attached to the program must not depend on the program's
  being part of a Debian system. If the program is extracted from Debian
  and used or distributed without Debian but otherwise within the terms
  of the program's license, all parties to whom the program is
  redistributed must have the same rights as those that are granted in
  conjunction with the Debian system."
