I had a discussion with Manuel on question 3 a long time ago. Under the 
license, there is no issue with rebranding and/or modifying M0n0 for use and 
sale. However, never ever try to patent it and do not remove the license info 
contained within the code.

We have takn M0n0, modified it for our use, meaning replaced images and added 
some features we needed and deploy it to customers. 

Only thing the community asks is that you protect a portion of the proceeds to 
donate back to the project.
