Severity of trademark problems


Bug#152857 requests freeamp to be removed from the stable distribution
because upstream renamed (had to rename) itself into Zinf, because
AMPR is a trademark of PlayMedia Systems.

The website states: "Zinf is based on the FreeAmp source code.
However, AMPR is a trademark of PlayMedia Systems, Inc., and therefore
the original name of the project cannot be used any longer.  On this
website the old project will be referred to as FreeA*p."

I wonder if we really need to remove freeamp from Debian stable.

(Similar to Netsaint -> Nagios, not all of netsaint is removed from
Debian either)
