When someone asks me if they can use the Gentoo logo's I state that the
Gentoo logo is copyright protected and the Gentoo name trademarked, that
we're currently not allowing any commercial use of this logo generally and
that we're working on an agreement form so that this is well documented in
the future. I also mention that commercial use will probably be permitted in
the future given some conditions.
It's an intermediate answer, shifting the problem in time until we have made
Bent Hindrup Andersen, Danish MEP, about the Software Patent Directive:
The approach of the Commission and Council in this directive is shocking.
They are making full use of all the possibilities of evading democracy that
the current Community Law provides. <http://lwn.net/Articles/84009/>
