This is following a discussion started in HighResolutionLogos. I feel it's important to get any questionable materials out of the shipping release ASAP. Unfortunately this means CairoRelease DakarRelease now.

I hate to see this delayed because it's just wrong. Ignoring this is probably not very dangerous in real terms unless someone complains. As TWiki gets more popular, this gets more likely. Our target audience as defined in TWikiMission will immediately raise this question when seeing the logo, and even if the installers do not raise the issue, more senior managers definately will.

Sorry to have to raise this again, but as I understand it we are still shipping infringing logos (the twiki robot). I know that none of the alternatives have really excited people, but we really need to get a decision one way or the other. As I understand it, the use of the current logo is a trademark infringement and we put installers at risk of litigation by shipping it. Because of this concern the DEVELOP branch currently contains a blank space where the logo needs to go.

There seem to be three alternatives:

  1. I and others are wrong, and the current logo is perfectly legal
  2. We change to a non-infringing logo from HighResolutionLogos or FriendshipLogos (or another graphical solution that comes forward)
  3. We don't ship with a logo.

We really need to get this sorted.

Not prepared to wait any longer. HighResolutionLogos are in DevelopBranch as of r3745

good call Crawford - I almost did it a few weeks ago, but started playing with upgrade instead smile

The HighResolutionLogos are no longer in use.

The logo copyright question has been resolved now with the new "T" TWikiLogos.

Actually there is still one clarification required. The new logos were crafted by Peter and Arthur, who have not expressed any specific individual copyright claim, AFAIK. Can we assume, and assert, that the logo artwork is therefore Copyright (C) 2005 TWiki Contributors? Minor point, perhaps, but best to get it clarified now to avoid arguments later.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 12 Oct 2005

We will come with a proposal soon. We need to investigate some things first.
