Seems like you still have to worry about finding the magic statements
from the owners of all of the IP on the CD that is derived from other
GPL'd IP, not just the Ubuntu people?

And I'm doubtful that the Ubuntu CD even qualifies for 3(c), based on
the home web site having a "Commercial" link to paid support, etc.

Is it FUD yet?
