To do so, it first assumes that such project registers its name and/or visual identity as a trademark. Then, the project's source code remains available under the free license chosen by the project, but the use of the name or visual identity is now governed by the maintainer contract, which stipulates that the right to use the project's brand in the course of business is subject to the payment of a sum equivalent to 1% of the turnover generated by the applicant's use of the project and its brand in the course of business. 
We are now seeking to clarify the terms and conditions of the collection and redistribution mechanism provided for in the contract.
