Two data points:

SJVN's use of the debian trademark when criticising the distribution is
fine (unlike the actual criticism, which is buggy).

Businesses selling probably-sweatshop-sewn T-shirts (maybe made from
subsidised US cotton) reflect badly on debian, but are also permitted.

However, both are currently permitted.
