I think that is a difference between licensing and trademark. That is, it
means ubuntustudio, but the creator has no right to say how it can be used
outside of that. In other words anyone can use it without specifying
licensing, but it would be wrong to use it for referring to "Joe's Tire
Service". It still means UbuntuStudio.

What I don't know, is that this is too simple to license, how anyone can
own a font...
