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

But trademarks don't cover works.  Your whole message treats
trademarks as a funny sort of copyright which sometimes doesn't follow
chains of derivation.  They aren't.  They're a completely different

For example, your model doesn't deal at all with the fact that we have
the string "IBM" packaged at many points.  It's a trademark, and there
is nothing like what you'd call a free license for it.  Would you
advocate removing the trademarks of IBM, Apple, Bitstream, Mozilla,
and AT&T?  How about TeX?
