Hey Jeff,

Thanks for the official word. I kinda figured that the logo was
probably trademarked, therefore disallowing people to do with it as
they wish. I completely agree too. I wouldn't want some schmuck making
products with a logo I designed and had no control over. Even on free
work that I give away, I retain the copyrights so my clients can't
take the graphics I gave them and sell them to some third party.

I'm not sure that I'd call any of what I did a "design" - as I just
rasterized the SVG image at the appropriate resolution for printing. I
do think the logo is awesome as it stands and hope the official
tshirts turn out like the samples I made. :)

While I'm on the subject, since I can't program to save my life, if
anyone needs any graphics made for the Ubuntu community, let me know.
I'd love to be able to give something besides money back to the
