I wanna customize Ubuntu mini CD and sell it to companies (make unique Ubuntu version). Is it legal? I mean we will do absolutely different system, but making it from mini cd.

Yeah, I really have FOSS spirit, and I want to share Linux and make it popular. But for live I need money, so I thought I can make different versions of Ubuntu with my DE and some unique things for each company. So that will be ideal job for me.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I think it is legal. You have to change the name and branding, but other then that..., good luck. [ZorinOS Premium] is just that. – mikewhatever Oct 19 '13 at 17:22

Well you definitely can! Read:Licensing

But try to keep up the FOSS Spirit, BTW!
