So I am doing a College research project for my Computer Information Systems department and it is about alternative Linux server distribution for small businesses. From my findings I would really like for this research to actually take off into a Distribution project (Using Ubuntu as a base OS).

However I would like to rename the distribution as "Bizbuntu" or something related to that ("Biz" being shorthand for business) however I don't know if I can name the distribution without consent from Canonical.

So my question is do I have to contact Canonical about this, if so, does anyone know a mailing list or email that I can contact them about this?

    What's wrong with the "Contact" page on canonical.com? – dobey May 13 '14 at 2:38
  • My inquiry does not apply to Media, Partnering, and Customer categories, it's more of a IP inquiry... – Mudkip May 14 '14 at 0:17

Have you visited the Canonical web site? You can see the contact information from there on the about page.

Just if you couldn't find it yet, here it is:
