OK, right, file, note the following about the previous emails: generally, my use of "trademark" was referring to "registered trademark giving access to the protections in the Trade Marks Act".

The restrictions permitted by a *registered* trademark are oppressive and Debian should not use them. Furthermore, it should not use copyright licences to police its logos because it is then promoting non-free software.

My Opinion Only and possibly not of any group I know.
