Subject: Gentoo "G" and third-party logos
Date: Sat, 23 Oct 2004 11:39:51 +0200
Hi all

Some (quite a few I can believe) communities want to sell Gentoo T-Shirts
for commercial purposes. The current guidelines we've drafted don't allow
the use of the "g" logo for commercial purposes unless it's not the primary
logo on the same side (i.e. there must be a larger logo on the t-shirt).

I've received the question regarding the use of a (smaller) g-logo _inside_
a larger logo. Communities (say "The Foo Gentoo Community") don't mind
creating their own logo but they always (or most of the time) want to use
the "G" logo inside.

What's our point in these cases? Do we allow the unmodified use of the G
logo within other logos for commercial purposes? Do we require certain
rules regarding "the other" logo (so that it's not just a circle around the
"g" logo) or do we rather not allow it at all?

Wkr,
      Sven Vermeulen
