Maybe they will finally get it (probably not)
I’ve mentioned Firefox less-than-total commitment to the Free Software concept in previous posts. It would seem that those guys from Mozilla got the whole deal more than a little bit off. As this article shows, not only does they trademarked the Firefox logo, but also have a clause that stipulating that using Firefox name without the official branding is a trademark violation. Don’t use the Firefox name, you say? Why, thank you, say Debian. Especially since that would release them of the other obligation, that any updates/patches they make to Firefox have to get approved by Mozilla before being implemented. This really gives the whole “FOSS” (Free and Open-Source Software) concept a new twist.
Same issue has been affecting Debian-derivative Ubuntu, who also have been using a customised (albeit ugly) not-trademarked icon for Firefox, apparently against the browser’s license. Debian have already announced that they will re-brand (and most likely fork) Firefox for use in their GNU/Linux distribution, it remains to be seen how would Ubuntu react to this issue.
