Some of the things that are explicitly allowed by the policy are
things that AFAIK are not restricted by trademark law, is the purpose
of including those to reduce the number of questions from people who
aren't well informed about the restrictions in trademark law?
The NeuroDebian project (and other Debian derivatives and
sub-projects) has a logo that is modified from the Debian one, that
would appear to not be allowed if we were to trademark the swirl logo.
Also some derivatives also use a name that is similar to "Debian", for
example Debathena, Emdebian.
Does the domain name restriction mean that sites like these will have
to rename themselves?
