Well, the Official Use Logo is used on DD business cards, AFAICT:
http://www.debian.org/events/materials/business-cards/flashy/carte_debian_expo.png

It is also used on official Debian CD/DVD images, IIUC.


It is even used in the following (quite impressive) images:

http://www.sodesk.com/display-image-album-203-pos-23.html

http://www.sodesk.com/display-image-album-203-pos-129.html

I don't know whether the latter use has been officially authorized: I
once got in touch with the author who told me that the DPL (Martin
Michlmayr, at the time) was aware of those images and had nothing to
complain...  Does this count as an official authorization?  I don't
know...


The usual disclaimers: IANAL, TINLA, IANADD, TINASOTODP.
