It's always good to discuss this important issue. One of the reasons 
we're using Jira for logo submission is uploading a file prompts the 
submitter to check a bullet that says "Grant license to ASF for 
inclusion in ASF works (As per the Apache Software Licnese)". And here's 
  wording from  http://db.apache.org/derby/logo_contest.html :

   "The only logos that will be considered are those for which the 
license has been granted to the ASF. But only grant the license to the 
ASF if you are entitled to do so. Don't include any elements to which 
you don't have rights or permission."

I'll move that wording into the description at 
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-297, since that's where the 
main action is.
