Thanks a lot, Stefano, for this change.  I think that it will strenghen our
position when asking to relax license clauses restricting commercial use for
some software we distribute or would like to distibute.

I have one final comment, not related to the above.  For understandable
reasons, the proposed trademark policy is quite insisting on not
misrepresenting Debian.  But how about parody and satire ?  Do we rely on fair
use regulations in each countries to allow them despite our trademark policy ?

Have a nice day,
