Re: Fedora: Freedom is a Feature.

I guess my initial comment regarding trademark was spurred by seeing the

closely linked, it felt natural that the phrase would be serving a very
similar role to that of the logo itself, and thus they should be treated


This is a good point, actually. One of the nice things about trademark protection is that you can protect "elements grouped together in a certain way" without having to protect the individual elements themselves.

But yes -- worth more thinking after we all agree that "Freedom is a Feature" is the right slogan. Which, evidently, we do.
