It probably should be in the FAQ, since it is a FAQ.

Neither Microprose nor Sid Meyer have officially commented on Freeciv in
the six years Freeciv has existed, but I am fairly confident that they
know about the project (since it is listed on Apolypton, among other
places). None of their trademarks are being infringed, and none of their
source code, graphics, sounds or text has been used.
