In fact it's more complicated than that. There's a practical exemple :

I'm a member of the French LoCo. As LoCo we don't receive any funds by
Ubuntu Fundation or Canonical, but we have the right to sell the translated
version of Ubuntu. The profit is used to funds our LoCo

So if we can't make profits selling Ubuntu, we can't live as a LoCo.

All the work made by the community is place under Free licence, artwork,
software, documentation because if someone wants to sell Ubuntu, as Dell in
China, or a LoCo, he is free to do it.
