Edited by Kay Schenk:
 h2. What do I need to know about the Apache OpenOffice License?

Apache OpenOffice (3.4 and future distributions under the Apache Software Foundation) use
 Apache license, AL2. More about this license and how this license applies to various scenarios
can be found on the [Apache License and Distribution FAQ|]

 h2. Can I let my clients download your software and use your logo on my website or other
distribution media?

Please see the [Apache OpenOffice Trademarks|]
page for more information on about the "Apache OpenOffice" and "" trademarks
and what you need to do to use them. Also, please review information which applies to [older logos and icons|] on [the
OpenOffice wiki|]. 

 h2. Can I Produce a CD/DVD of your software and distribute it.

Yes, this is covered under Apache License 2. Please see  *I'm not a lawyer. What does it all
MEAN?* section of the [Apache License FAQ page|].
This means you can distribute Apache OpenOffice as Apache OpenOffice, not applying any other
naming to it.

 h2. I want to link to your product/page. Will you partner with me and link to mine?

Due to the number of potential distributors of Apache OpenOffice, this is not possible. We
are hopeful that well-known search engines will be able to find your "packaging" or "distribution"
with minimal effort.

 h2. Can I distribute OpenOffice on a CD or my website and call it something else?

Generally, no. If such a need arises for whatever reason, please contact the [Apache OpenOffice

h2. I still have questions, what should I do?

Please contact the [Apache OpenOffice PPMC|mailto:].
