Re: Firefox/Thunderbird trademarks: a proposal

In the extreme case we could ship a firefox package that depend on a
iceweasel package that contains the actual program while firefox is just
a dummy package that cause iceweasel to call itself firefox.

It would be natural to do this as part of the icewealsel scenario, and
I don't think it will cause trademark problems if only the 'firefox'
package goes into non-free.

Exactly, maybe we could even put the official icons to that non-free package :).

But again, for me it is still unclear if we need to patch the orig.tar.gz in advance. I would think so; we currently remove the icons anyway, so IMHO removing all other trademarks would be necessary too, right?
