<p>Looking at this further, we have a following line that states:</p>
<p></p>
<p>&quot;&quot;</p>
<p>Commercial use of the Gentoo &quot;g&quot; logo and Gentoo artwork for any other purpose is expressly denied. The use of the &quot;g&quot; logo and Gentoo artwork for any product that is not a software or computer hardware product is expressly denied.</p>
<p>&quot;&quot;</p>
<p></p>
<p>In my interpretation this means that support and services are denied.  People who are offering support, or people offering Gentoo hosting, etc. should be able to use the logo within the guidelines stated, IMO.  I move we vote to have this changed such that Commercial support and services are allowed to use the logo with the same listed guidelines.  With this, the first paragraph under &quot;Commercial Use&quot; should be changed to read:</p>
<p></p>
<p>&quot;&quot;</p>
<p>Commercial use of the Gentoo &quot;g&quot; logo and Gentoo artwork is allowed for the following, provided that the conditions below are met: any software or computer hardware product that contains or is based upon content produced by the Gentoo project, services that provide commercial support gor Gentoo, and services that are built on or make use of Gentoo. The conditions for use are as follows:</p>
<p>&quot;&quot;</p>
<p></p>
<p>The bottom paragraph should be changed to read:</p>
<p></p>
<p>&quot;&quot;</p>
<p>Commercial use of the Gentoo &quot;g&quot; logo and Gentoo artwork for any other purpose is expressly denied. The use of the &quot;g&quot; logo and Gentoo artwork for any product that is not a software or computer hardware product, or support and service of Gentoo is expressly denied.</p>
