Well the W3C's button is their property, isn't it? I think they have a
right to defend the use of that property, although legal action would
be doubtful (well with what they charge for membership, <g>, they
should have enough money to handle the legal fees). Using the button
in that kind of dishonest way degenerates its value too.
