I think there is being a point missed here. As ambassador you are just handing out a disk. You are not: 1. Putting it into a persons machine. 2. Installing it for them. 3. You have not been instructed by them to provide a service. 4. Maliciously and recklessly installing something, without their consent. 5. Providing them with a written/verbal guarantee that it will not eat his/her Children. Probably a few other points I have missed. I think the key protection here is that the end-user does not end up in a service agreement, or has purchased a product, nor that Fedora is deployed without his/her consent. Regards, Tristan P.s.: Of course, there might be a weird and wonderful country, where handing out free software is a crime, or anything free for that matter. However unlikely that is! But legal systems are weird and wonderful like a bunch of parrots. -- Tristan Santore BSc MBCS TS4523-RIPE Network and Infrastructure Operations InterNexusConnect Mobile +44-78-55069812 Tristan.Santore@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Former Thawte Notary (Please note: Thawte has closed its WoT programme down, and I am therefore no longer able to accredit trust) For Fedora related issues, please email me at: TSantore@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx _______________________________________________ legal mailing list legal@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/legal
