+ - Why do you need license from Canonical to create derivatives?->

Yesterday the Community council published a statement about Canonical's licencing policies but it doesn't nothing more than leaving things more vague than they were and tell derivatives to not go to the press and instead talk to the Community Council which seldom responds. Now Jonathan Riddell of Kubuntu has come forth and said no one needs any licence to create any derivative. So the question remains when Oracle or CentOS don't need licence from Red Hat to create a clone why does Canonical?
