As far as I remember, the conclusion has always been "It should be;
we're inappropriately using copyrights to enforce a trademark restriction".
We could instead leave the logo unencumbered by copyright, so that
people can derive their own logos from it, while enforcing our trademark,
so that people aren't allowed to use it to create confusion between
their work and ours.
