Re: Legal use of the Debian Logo

No, absolutely not.

I think this logo is a trademark, i.e proprietary and so the owner of
the site should be warned about this.

You can take legal action against the dude in this case. Trademarks
and servicemarks have no expiry like patents.

On the contrary, I think it is fully legal:

copyright: the logo is too simple to enforce copyright.

trademark: we are in very different fields, so no risk
to confuse Debian with some jewels.

Hi all.
I found an italian site (http://www.4youargento.com/it/brand.asp)
where an italian jewelry sells a jewels line having the debian swirl
into the logo.
The word under the swirl is "argento" and means silver in italian.

Is it a legal use of the Debian Logo?

Thank you.
