Software being sold on Amazon.com and Vipon.com

Dad Review
Hi,

I'm not sure if your aware or if it's legal, but I found your software
being sold on Vipon.com and Amazon.com. I just wanted to pass this
information along just in case, I would hate to see people paying for
something that is freely available.

Well, back when I could not afford high speed internet (dialup was allI
could afford),
I found it easier to buy the DVD of the free software online.
The sad part of that I was stung by embedded malware that got installed
by the installation script. But most of the time, things were clean for
most of the online DVD's I purchased.
Getting rid pf the malware was a lot more difficult as it was not recognozed
as such by most AV scanners.
So, I had to reformat the drive and reinstall the OS and all the
packages from their original CD's and DVD's.

Yes it is legal to sell copies of the software, see the Apache 2.0 licence:

However, the use of the OpenOffice trademark might be questionable in
