Copyright Question (Logo)

Philipp Winkler
Hi list,

I am using Xen and I want to set up a german community site all about Xen.
I´d like to use the logo
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/graphics/xenlogo.gif or
even modify it to fit my pages layout.
Would this be ok for you guys?

Regards,
Philipp

Hi,

I think Philipp raised an interesting question, as I was also willing to
use the logo as a basis for a community site logo.

This makes me ask a more general question on Intellectual Property :
Xen's source code is clearly under GPL, but logo, documentation and even
the yet-to-be-official wiki have no mention of licence, owner nor of
usage rights (see http://www.debian.org/logos/ for an example).

I believe that is it the right moment to solve all possible IP issues
once and for all : Having a contributing community is probably the
biggest advantage Xen has against proprietary solutions, and true
community support can't happen serenely if such things are not clear enough.

Sincerely,
Gildas

Yep, we're working on this. We're in the process of taking legal advice
to create a trademark licensing policy.  Until that has been completed,
I don't wish to grant any licenses as it will just complicate things.
I'm hoping we'll be done in a couple of weeks or so -- please check
back.

Best,
Ian
