This clause is for the logo with "Debian" text. The license for the logo
"without Debian" is as follows (where I believe 'software' is the logo):

| Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a
| copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"),
| to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation
| the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense,
| and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the
| Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions:
| The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in
| all copies or substantial portions of the Software.

I'm deliberately not offering any advice because I am not a lawyer. I suggest
that further discussion is moved to debian-legal or to SPI, who are the
copyright holders.
