Hi all,

Not sure if this is the place for this, but I believe it is common concern.

I have seen several projects using tweaks (color, distortion,
composition) of the Semantic Web "box" logo. After reading the
policies I "believe" that this is allowed as long as there is no "W3C"
logo involved.

http://www.w3.org/2007/10/sw-logos.html

Is this correct? Can I create such modifiied derivatives from the
clean box logo w/o running into any problems?
Composition is the border case as the logo is unmodified and
recognizable, therefore legally "troublesome".

My 2 cents is that they should allow "anything" as long as you strip
the W3C part.

Thanks,
A
