Apologies, I waited over a month and got no comments from this list, from
OpenOffice.org, openoffice marketing, sun, or anyone.

<snip stuff that didn't make the 10 second rule>

so anyway, I'll just my own in the meantime.

I have emailed their marketing dept, so we'll see what happens.

Most of their stuff is LGPL, which we cant use (but mainly refers to code
and redistribution and/or contribution of), but some stuff like logos and
other artwork fall into a PDL (Public Documentation License), I'll have to
look into that and perhaps liaise with legal as that is currently not
mentioned on the page you referred to earlier.

Thanks

Gav...
