  1. Fedora, RedHat needs Fedora to test for stabilizing as releases of CentOS and RHEL and has donated to Fedora, so of course being an RedHat trademark.
  2. GNOME, the workstation and default desktop shell for Fedora, RedHat has also hosted everything for GNOME.
  3. gtk+, the engine composing GNOME so being a part under GNOME, there are 4/11 core members in gtk+ from RedHat.
  4. CentOS, just like RHEL Fedora is being tested hence stabilized for their releases, CentOS is also aimed to be by gross compatible under RHEL.

In fact Fedora is of course an RedHat trademark, however has RedHat also trademarked over GNOME, gtk+, CentOS like Fedora?

As for Gnome, the project and the Gnome Foundation are governed by the Board of Directors, which is elected annually. Members of the Board are from many organizations, not just RH. See Advisory Board, and Member list.

As the owner of the Gnome Project, The Gnome Foundation holds the rights and the trademarks related to Gnome (the name and the logo sign), see here for more information. So, the answer to your questions is a No.

The Fedora Project is a community project sponsored by RH. So, naturally RH owns the trademark on the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is governed by the community arranged in the bodies listed here . Find more about the Fedora Project on the Overview page.

CentOS is similar to Fedora; RH is the trademark holder: link
