Interesting.
Thank you guys, I would prefere to suggest avoiding respin.
Providing the original Fedora ISO is great. But does "software" includes
"ISO"?

If for example a DVD is burned including a Live ISO as well as some free
sofware aside (not preinstalled in the ISO, but could be other
distributions, free software sources…), will it needs the secondary
mark? If the secondary mark is not needed, what would be allowed in the
sleeves? "Fedora® included" as well as the trademark attribution
statement?
