You took the permission for the logo. But having the site name as Fedora 
is different than using the logo on your site.
This is like me having a site "" and claiming in the 
footer that I am not associated with them.
While  doing that may/may not be perfectly legal,  I would like to 
refrain from doing that on moral grounds.
But as suggested, check with trademarks at 
<mailto:trademarks at>.


PS. Some people might call your actions "cyber squatting" or "domain 
hijacking", though I am sure you have no such intentions :)
