Just a point - the Fedora had been Red Hat's trademark since, what, 1997?
Also, it's in a completely different field - cf: the whole Firebird nonsense.
Sorry, I think your memory is playing tricks on you:
Warren Togami founded the original Fedora Project as a school project during 2002 while studying Computer Science at the University of Hawaii. That project has since merged with Red Hat to become the Fedora Project of today, which is at the forefront of Research & Development for Red Hat.

Note the date.
The Flexible Extensible Digital Object and Repository Architecture (Fedora) began as a DARPA and NSF-funded research project of Carl Lagoze and Sandy Payette at Cornell University's Digital Library Research Group in 1997, where the first reference implementation and a CORBA-based technical implementation were built. Fedora was designed on the principle that interoperability and extensibility is best achieved by architecting a clean and modular separation of data, interfaces, and mechanisms (i.e., executable programs).

Again, note the date. Old documents are available concerning the trademark dispute, but I've seen nothing new (including a resolution) since 2003.
