Hello! We are an independent Linux distribution vendor headquatered in Moscow, Russia, and we would like to have a permission to use Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird names and logos. We have become acquainted with the most recent versions of the trademark policy documents and we realize that we should send you a signed agreement. Could you please send us a form of this agreement? Or is it free-form? Best regards, Egor Grebnev
Can you tell us what, if any changes you plan to make to Firefox and Thunderbird? Gerv

We change the start page in Firefox to the internal index.html of the distribution. 2. We would like to change the bookmarks to the country- and distribution-specific websites (the topics are hardware, IT news, Linux news, ALT Linux and certainly Mozilla). Your permission is needed. 3. We would like to add the popular Yandex search engine to the list of the default engines (by far it is the most effective when you search for pages in Russian). Your permission is needed. 4. We build Firefox and Thunderbird with platform-specific keys, which do not introduce any functional changes.
Sounds fine. Please read, agree to and follow the instructions on this document: http://www.mozilla.org/foundation/trademarks/distribution-policy.html Gerv
It seems that we conform to all the requirements except the bookmarks and search engine, which need your permission. Do I understand it right that the next step is to print the distribution trademark policy, state that 'we agree to the terms of this policy' and mail it to you?
You don't need additional permissions for the bookmark changes - it's bullet number 2) in the policy. You may add Yandex to the list, but you can't change the default. Hope that's OK :-) If so, mail back the form as it asks. Gerv
Gerv, This should be a silly question, but.. which 'form' do you mean? http://www.mozilla.org/foundation/trademarks/distribution-policy.html is a set of instructions, it does not contain any fields to fill in.
I meant the instructions in the last paragraph. Gerv
I have received the receipt today. Is our agreement all right?
If you have received your receipt, then that is fine. Gerv
