Re: Bug#265352: grub: Debian splash images for Grub

Similarly, the logo/"logo image" is used to identify Debian as Debian;

a license which prohibits those uses we find "undesirable", such as use
by competing (or even friendly) distributions.  Again, this is non-free.

No, the trademark prevents the use of the logo in misleading ways. In the same way I can't go and make a new distro called "Debian", I can't use Debian's logo either.

There is no requirement that misrepresentation be allowed in the DFSG.
