Symantec asks G4L to stop infringing on Ghost name

This is hardly an unreasonable request. An IT manager that doesn't eat/breathe/sleep Linux (most don't) would be confused or at least forced to wonder what the relationship between G4L is with Symantec. Also bear in mind that Symantec could have come out *way* harder than it did, but unfortunately a corporation can't start a conversation like this without a cease and desist even if all they want to say "dude, change the name please." C&Ds are the legal equivalent of a tap on the shoulder - don't look any deeper than that. They've given the G4L team a simple way out of the problem - take it and move on.
