http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal:Trademark_guidelines#Virtual_images_or_appliances_with_unmodified_Fedora_software

"It is permissible to use the Fedora Trademarks without prior permission 
in connection with the provision and sale of virtual images or appliance 
distributions pre-loaded with Fedora software, provided that..."

Fedora on EC2 complies with all of this. So I'm ... puzzled, I suppose, 
as to why I'm running around trying to have an "officially sanctioned" 
test day, some sort of signoff sheet, and blessing by release 
engineering, for an image that the SIG itself is entirely capable of 
creating in 5 minutes now, and obviously would test anyhow because 
people take pride in what they do, etc.
