Bug#492623: ttf-liberation: Trademark prevents modifications

Package: ttf-liberation
Version: 1.04~beta2-2
Severity: important

Quoting the license:
    The "LIBERATION" trademark is a trademark of Red Hat, Inc. in the U.S. and other
    countries. This agreement does not permit Client to distribute modified versions 
    of the Software using Red Hat's trademarks. If Client makes a redistribution of 
    a modified version of the Software, then Client must modify the files names to 
    remove any reference to the Red Hat trademarks and must not use the Red Hat 
    trademarks in any way to reference or promote the modified Software.

If you modify the files, you must
 - Rename the fonts to remove any reference to Liberation
 - Not install the fonts as liberation
 - Rename the binary package and the source package
 - Change the description to remove all references to Liberation and
   Red Hat.

This makes updates almost impossible.
