I think Roberto's point is that the Lua license is about the software,
not about the name (which is not registered in any way, being a common
Portuguese word) or the logo (which *is* copyrighted). If we wanted to
make any claims on the name, a trademark would be needed and so would
be the object of a separated legal text (I'm not sure licence applies
for a name). --lhf
