"perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free use of the "Gentoo" trademark
and "G" logo" is not the same thing as "selling a few t-shirts",
Surely "perpetual use of the "Gentoo" trademark and "G" logo" permits
Gentoo Technologies Inc the same freedoms that RedHat & Mandrake have
with their own trademarks & logos..?
I have no idea what the implications are of this. I'm sure no-one
begrudges you the money made off t-shirts, boxed sets or even official
support, however I don't see how Gentoo NFP would be protected against
you charging for, say, a Gentoo premium service.
Why not just have Gentoo NFP employ you in your cd-burning,
t-shirt-printing capacity, and have the NFP pay you a wage..?
