This is really tthree cases:

a) A Get logo which is used to link to an official version. A website can link to OOo or AOO

The "Get" logo at the bottom right corner of the User Forums is an example.

b) An Includes logo which a CD/DVD/packager could indicate a valid release which can be verified
through OOo or AOO.

c) An Powered by logo to indicate that a repackaged version of AOO is being used.

There are distinctions to make. Would we care about registering the use of these logos?
