Sure they do. From the Fedora legal perspective what legal entities
outside of US do is none of our concern.

I didn't require a change to the core license. Who told you I was? What
I wanted was a official translation. That's the minimum we need to
ensure that we don't include software under licenses don't understand or
I am just not sure we have the legal and financial resources to pay for
translations every time we include new software under regional licenses
that people cook up. It's time to get back to Red Hat legal and asked
for their opinion I guess.
