Dear SvenV,<br>
<br>
i think gentoo foundation's current name/logo guidelines need some modifications to apply. <br>
<br>
note: when v r moving on de road we can see lot of caps,t-shirts,etc...
named with &quot;Nike&quot; name, so why gentoo? i think its a good advertising
method us to promote Gentoo among others...(this is my opinieon).<br>

The main idea here is to only allow use of the Gentoo &quot;g&quot; logo for
<br>&gt; Gentoo stuff.<br><br>Thank you Sven for the quick answer,<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;but
this is not the first time I hear this problem. All We want to do - as
Gentoo Channel Italia - is cooperating with the Gentoo Foundation.<br>What
me and deadhead forgot to say in the previous mails is that the money
gained from the t-shirts sold has been used to cover the printing
costs, while the remaining has always been donated to the Foundation. I
don't think this is much different from the use that makes Gentoo Store.<br>I
do think that if Gentoo Foundation doesen't allow such a use of the
gentoo logo, harms itself in a way, just because the only thing a
&quot;gentooer&quot; wants to buy is Gentoo-related things, and in my opinion
something with a °G° on it is &quot;gentoo stuff&quot; as you said. Indirectly
this seems to mean that we are not &quot;Gentoo related&quot;. This is nothing
but merchandising.<br>So what do we need? A Certificate that states we
are allowed to sell Gentoo stuff? I'm really disappointed by this
situation and I want to underline what you wrote:<br>&gt; The Foundation does need to fine-tune the entire idea about the logo though,<br>&gt; either broadening the use of the logo, or having a community-logo, or ...<br>
it seems like the Foundation doesen't want to cooperate world-wide with all who wants to help it. This makes things really hard.<br><br>I
must repeat that no money involved in our merchandising stuff has been
used for other things than printing and donating to the Foundation.<br><br>We
want to get involved. As I said in my previous mail, I'd be really
proud of letting my posters be selled on gentoo store, but it seems
like a someone else's problem.<br><br>I hope this will not end it here and that the Foundation will be interested in solving it.<br><br>Best regards,<br><br>--<br>Matteo 'Peach' Pescarin<br><br>ICQ UIN = 71110111<br>Web Site =
