It is, and I'd like to be able to keep it.  But the Ubuntu people are pretty
clear about how they want to see their trademark used.

We could ask them for permission.  I suspect they wouldn't give it, but it
wouldn't hurt to ask.

We could also come up with our own name that didn't include "buntu", and
we'd be safe from the trademark threat potential.

Well, we can do whatever we'd like.  But we'll have to be responsive if
Canonical asks us to respect their trademark.  And personally, I'd prefer to
go ahead and do what they'd like before they ask us to.

What about if we came up with some other name that wouldn't cause trademark


I'm sure we can come up with something better than any of these ideas.  If
Canonical doesn't (or in British English, don't) want us to recognize Ubuntu
in the name of our product, then I'm OK with not doing it.

We could also call it lilypuntu, since they only claim trademark to words
ending in "BUNTU".  Juse move the splice one character to the right.  It
even sounds almost the same, but is spelled differently.

We could also change the part of the name we put in our remix.  Instead of
lilybuntu we could call it ubulily.
