you likely wont have any issues as long as you are not making a profit from them or the event (yes even the event).

comment Is it possible to create Ubuntu Shirts ( Merchandise )
shop.canonical.com accepts PayPal, which is also available in Venezuela. It will take about a week to transfer but there is your option. AFAIK making Ubuntu Branded T-Shirts is a nono.

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
yup. It is also good to know that you can still boot in using the LiveCD and attempt to recover your data. I was able to pull my /.cache and /.config out after the bork (those being the two things I never think to make weekly backups of)

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
yea my issue was: 1) Removed Windows alltogether, 2) Booted to LiveCD, 3) Merged my newly free'd space with my Ubuntu partition, 4) Boot into Ubuntu from my SSD (not LiveCD).... 5 days and maybe 6-7 boots later it was borked. --- not an issue just mentioning it so others can see it MAY cause problems when diddling around with partition sizes.

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
I have had strange issues after removing windows and re-sizing my partitions.. using GParted from the liveCD everything appeared to work, but then things stopped wanting to mount, and finally I ended up with a borked system (no DE, no Internet, no GUI recovery mode, ect..) - however this all happened in the 5 days following the resize.

the "Yes, Ubuntu doesn't" is confusing.. can you think of a way to re-word this to be a bit more concise?
