Free and open source licenses cover copyrights and not trademarks. 
Trademarks are required to protect a brand and the brand is valuable 
enough to be protected. Otherwise anyone could do a distribution that 
wipes off hard disks and call it Fedora.  There are hundreds of 
different FOSS projects where the brand is protected including the Linux 
kernel, Apache, Mozilla Firefox and so on.
