Well I think Axel's question though does cover some other issues though.

What are the CentOS trademark guidelines? Currently there do not seem
to be any listed on the website. There do not seem to be any in the
included product, and there does not seem to be a registered
trademark. I know this gets into the murky area of law, ip etc.. but
it does come up and people's assumptions that they can use it for
anything they want because it is not OBVIOUSLY registered, protected,
or guidelined..
