ubuntu-title-fonts is trademark problem. Please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1009998#c3 details.
I think that this package be affected by bug#1009998.
1. Change package name.
2. Remove fedora repo.
3. contact trademark owner.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.
Regarding the original review request for ubuntu-keyring, there was a short discussion about in the Fedora-legal-list . Tom Callaway responsed , and he discouraged us to use "ubuntu" in package names.
That's why the ubuntu-title-fonts package needs either to be removed from the Fedora repos or renamed accordingly.
1. a font is not software
2. unbuntu-title is the actual font name chosen by upstream
3. the font license is OFL and the OFL includes specific sections about naming an upstream can use to forbid use of a particular name. (because legal protection of names is important for font producers : see the Reserved Font Name section)
4. there is an explicit trademark file in the package that explains the limits of the unbuntu-title name
Did you actually read the legal documentation included in the package?
Ugh. I am not a fan of how Canonical handles this, but I think it is reasonable to infer from Trademarks-Readme.txt that their use of their trademark in the font name is permissible (mostly because of the OFL license also in play). Closing this as NOTABUG.
