Subject: Re: [dita-lightweight-dita] Who owns the DITA bird logo?

Thanks Tom M. and Chet. I sent a direct message to the @OASISopen Twitter account and got this answer, for the record:

Does a non-profit group (Write the Docs) need to get permission to use the DITA "finch" logo to promote a talk I am giving to them on Lightweight DITA? Non commercial.

@OASISopen (I'm assuming it's Carol):
We're happy for you to use the finch in reference to DITA...just so long as it's not being used as an endorsement or as part of a company or product logo.

It's definitely owned by OASIS, for some definition of "owned". You should ask them.

For the record, here's a message I had from Carol Geyer (OASIS) about three years ago when I wanted to use the finch logo in an ad relating to XMetaL:

If it's not too late, can you send me a mock-up of your ad? We are happy to grant permission to use the logo if it's clearly referencing the standard. We just don't want people using it as part of their own product logos, etc.

I'm doing a Write the Docs talk about lwdita and they want to use the DITA "finch" logo in promoting it. Can they use this logo or does it require OASIS approval? I'm getting conflicting info on this.
