According to this article the fee is between $200 and $5000.  I'm sure a "license DSL fundraiser" could occur if need be.

This seems like Old News to me. Eight years old, almost to the day. See -

The terms for use of Linux as a trademark (as distinct from simply using it in writing, so I'm in the clear... ) can be found at -

If they haven't already, perhaps Robert and John and others in the 'core' DSL team should consider whether to formally acknowledge the ownership of the Linux name, as documented at - . Doing that is free, and would demonstrate 'Good Faith' (not that anyone with any linux/oss knowledge would have any grain of doubt.)
