There are two different products here:
1) I don't know what to call this one. The source distributed by Mozilla, all the parts that are covered under GPL.
2) Mozilla Firefox.
Ubuntu has to make a choice between one of the two (or offer both, of
course). The two are identical when it comes to functionality, though
the licensing, name, and logo are different. The first one is free/open
under various definitions, while the second one is not. Any modification
requires permission from Mozilla.
As per Ubuntu's principles, shouldn't we stick with option 1? Only for
the sake of branding, is it preferable to go with a non-free option?
