The only reason I threw this in there was to be able to determine if EAR 
applies to all codes hosted and distributed in the US as in code outside 
the "Fedora trademark" and Red Hat, which would then be applicable not 
only to fedorahosted ( which might have been a gray area ) but for 
example github inc  (which if I'm not mistaken is US based company as 
well. )

But you should be able to provide me with answer to the other questions.
