There was is a licencing issue for the distribution of the an Ubuntu
Drupal theme on drupal.org because while the code (php, html and css)
is GPLed and the resources CCed, part of the artwork is "protected" by
Canonical's trademark policy. This has been "ruled" as GPLed
incompatible (at least in spririt) by the Drupal community. See
http://drupal.org/node/798708. The alternative is to ship the theme
with alternate artwork.
