One of the many things one learns in a design school is to make
appropriate design decisions and using somebody else's logo in their own
is not one of them.

As I stated before, the proper reasoning and design choices made will be
presented to everyone after I will have more time. This was just to show
that we are not just lurking in the shadows doing nothing.

Take care.
