Quoting http://www.spi-inc.org/trademarks :
:Open Source, Open Hardware, and Debian are Registered Certification Marks
:of Software in the Public Interest, Inc.
:The Debian trademark is managed by Debian
And Debian is organised according to its constitution
As far as I recall, there have been no resolutions regarding the use of the
"Debian" trademark so far.
[IANAL, but is "fair use" a legal term when it comes to trademarks? I'm only
aware of "fair use" as a legal term in relation to copyright.]
Tevens ben ik van mening dat Nederland overdekt dient te worden.
