They are oppressive. Have you read them? Have you looked at cases in this field?

The Debian project is not a traditional software publisher. It is not likely to create a traditional reseller channel, with agreements permitting the use of the trademark and so on, or at least I hope it's not!

Provided trademark law handles all the
situations we need it to, I agree that we shouldn't need to have a
restrictive copyright license.

I consider that we do not need trademarks, so we at least agree that the logo licences are buggy.

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