I agree. There seems to be a disconnect between the trademark
conversation on -legal, the trademark conversation on -project, and
the trademark conversation on spi-trademark. For my part, I will be
forwarding these threads to the SPI trademark committee which has been
talking with lawyers about some of these issues for a few months now
(If this committee is news to you, don't worry, the discussion on
-project two weeks ago made this very obvious and the DPL and I have
been drafting a more public announcement about the committee which
should be out in the next day or so).

I agree with MJ that -project is the best place for this conversation
in regards to Debian and the Debian logos.

This is the thread on project that's perhaps the best place to start:
  http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2003/debian-project-200309/msg00004.html

I posted a few follow-ups about the committee on project already for
those that don't want to wait for the announcement:
  http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2003/debian-project-200309/msg00035.html
  http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2003/debian-project-200309/msg00045.html
