Including the FC2 on DVD with IT magazine

Hello there. Well, from what I know and have heard, if an IT magazine would like to include FC2 on a DVD, it is free to do so without any charge. Is that right?

As long as the GPL (gnu public license) is followed I beleive anyone can package and distribute FC2.

EDIT: moved to Fedora Focus as it is not related to a system or software issue

To be really sure, contact http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ RedHat.
But it shouldn't be a problem.

FC2 was provided on the DVDs and CDs of Linux Format without a hitch, so it should be ok for any other IT magazine to provide it, as long as the GPL is followed.

More questions. What's the situation with promo logos and stuff? Let's say you issue this with let's say (just an example) Traxdata's logo on the top of the DVD. Or put Txdt's logo on slimbox of the DVD?
And one other thing. What about changing the booting procedure so the thing includes (again, example) txdt's logo?

Thanx.

That's something to contact RedHat about.. I know that most of the artwork is free to use but the main Fedora logo I'm not sure.
