Not necessarily. The ASF isn't in the business of shutting people down
- that's kind of counter to everything we are all trying to achieve.
All we want to do is remove confusion for end users. For this reason,
you do need permission from our VP Trademarks to use our marks in ways
that do not class as normative use.

The right thing to do is to engage with the trademarks@apache.org list
(I've again addressed that list in this reply). The people over there
will work with you to ensure there is no confusion for end-users and
thus ASF marks are not infringed. Shane (our VP Brand Management) is a
nice guy, he'll be happy to work with you as opposed to against you
:-)
