[Foundation-l] Why there will be no "Wikipedia" at Debian

Debian and Mozilla had a struggle about using Mozillas Trademarks in 
Debian if the software and logos are changed but the name is not.[1] 
This should also apply to Wikipedia if people want to distribute 
Wikipedia content or modified parts then they cannot just call it 
"Wikipedia" - I just wanted to clarify and give an example because many 
people think that the our name and logos are as free as the content.
