Being pedantic here, according to Sophie in a note on a thread titled
'[Legalese] "Foundation" or "Group"?' on Oct 1, the Document Foundation
is not in fact a legal entity yet. (I was surprised to read this.)

Currently it's a group and the Foundation is not up yet, we will set 
it up with the community members who wish to contribute to it. We are
planing to write a charter,  organization, governance, duties, etc...
not only the small group who has launched the project, but all of the
people who are willing to be part of the Foundation.
For the moment, the German association is helping us to structure the 
whole thing and have a legal backup, but we still have a lot of work 
to move to an official foundation.
