Hello Giacomo,

I also did a Centos remix and as far as I could understand it gets 
tricky to use the name/logo if you distribute software outside the 
official repos. In my case I had to change the name (to Stella) and the 
artwork. This is what I'm modifying:

See also http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Remix, I would imagine some/most 
of that applies here, too.
