At this time being involved in several entities that have one or more 
fedora domain names registered, I can only say that you are not alone in 
your perceptions that this legal document is slightly twisting our arms 
as well as restricting us in translations of strings the binding 
contract wants to see mentioned, but...

I can also assure you that concerns raised are handled with care and 
that the twisting of arms as we percieve it is anything *but* deliberate 
and completely unintentional.

I would also like to mention that it is ultimately us that want these 
contracts to be signed, so that Red Hat Legal may finally act against 
*abuse* of the registered trademark, by sites such as the former which used to be a site with an anti-Fedora messages on 
it -if you know what I mean, but has now transferred in ownership to 
Fedora Unity.

Last I'll say in this thread.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
