Ubuntu is alienating the entire free software community at an alarming rate.

Cute :) I'm assuming this is in support of Micha Lee? Canonical were assholes for doing that. Sure, they were afforded legal right to but it's kinda like going around picking bar fights just because you're ripped and can. This sort of legal dick waving is only going to warn people away from agreeing to their CLAs. Seriously, face-plam and I just don't get how they could be so dumb.

I highly doubt that. Looks like bullying and intimidation to me, not action based on legal grounds in good faith.

@hugo Well, yes, that's what it is. However, under tort, the trademark is theirs and it's use on that page doesn't meet the requirements of nominative use or fair dealing.
