Hi, Sanket,

First ask for permission from the Apache Public Relations Committee (prc
<at> apache.org). http://db.apache.org/derby/logo.html has this wording:

   If you would like to use the Derby logo outside Apache -- for
example, for a t-shirt, poster, flier, or whatever -- first obtain
permission from the ASF Public Relations Committee by emailing your
request to prc <AT> apache.org.

I receive frequent questions about this. Software under the Apache
License is freely reusable and redistributable, but the Apache License
does not grant permission to reuse trademarks -- see section 6 of [1].
There was a recent discussion on legal-discuss about using subproject
logos [2].
