Red Hat has paid for the use of the font in the logo, and can
distribute copies of the logo royalty-free. The only reason that
someone might need a copy of the font is to modify the logo, and per
the trademark guidelines, that should never occur, therefore there is
no legal ramification to distributing the logo as is.
