You are not the first to ask this kind of question.

An earlier similar ruling is here:
http://lists.spi-inc.org/pipermail/spi-announce/2004/000068.html

Best place to ask questions is probably at the
debian-legal@lists.debian.org mailinglist.

The "head" of Debian with regard to this is probably the board of SPI
(Software in the Public Interest), as they look after the Debian
trademark, which seems to be the one relevant here.


Hope that helps - and good luck with your business :-)
