Well, strictly speaking you are mixing 2 different things:
Mandriva (the company) is one thing and Mandriva Linux is another. The
name "Mandriva Linux" belongs to the company, as the logo and maybe
some images do. But the distribution "Mandriva Linux" belongs to
nobody and is as free and autonomous as Mageia or any other community
based distribution.
