ALL free software is copyrighted. FireFox's logo is proprietary, so it's not 
free software, that's why Debian had to strip it.

Debian replaced the logo. But Mozilla said that you could not call the product 
FireFox without the logo. Since Debian doesn't want to allow non-free 
content, the whole thing had to be changed.

That's a little bit oversimplified. There were other problems, but at a 
glance, that was the original problem.
