Description mejiko 2013-09-07 10:17:13 UTC
Hello.

mate-icon-theme-faenza included trademark'ed and non-free icons.

See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1005176


This is trademark/copyright problem. 
Its non-free.


Suggests:

1. remove trademark'ed and non-free icons

2. replace fedora free (fedora acceptable licensed) icons.

3. remove fedora repos.


Thanks.

Wow OK I guess we should retire/block this based on the previous bugs.

Are you really shure that firefox/thunderbird icons aren't free to use?
Those applications are opensource and in fedora repos.

Why not removing those critical icons during rpm build process?

Seems like more work than it's worth? We'd have to know exactly what is "trademarked" and what isn't?

Comment 7 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-09-08 10:11:12 UTC
In my opinion only icons from applications which aren't under a opensource licence, ie. skype, google, addobe, twitter, facebook, etc. and distributor-logos are critical to use in fedora.

Comment 8 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-09-08 10:12:44 UTC
There is a fedora-legal mailing list to clarify those questions.

Comment 9 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-09-08 11:48:17 UTC
I did send an email to fedora-legal-list to clarify the situation for another theme.

@ mejiko
And again, please explain why you think icons from opensource apps which are in fedora repos are a problem for you?

Note: I am not a lawer.


If opensource app icons is not trademark'ed, Its no problem (No trademark restriction). 

If opensource app icons is trademark'ed and permit freely using trademark (Fedora acceptable trademark license requirement), Its no problem. (E.g libreoffice, Fedora, Debian, etc...)

but If opensource app icons is trademark'ed and not permit freely using trademark (Fedora unacceptable trademark license requirement), Its non-free, trademark problem. (E.g Ubuntu, Firefox, Gentoo, etc...)

Thanks.
