I agree with you here. I have been a bit to easy (== not thinking) on
using the logo just thinking it would be under whatsoever free license
but I was apparently wrong. I appreciated not having been attacked,
but suggested in good manners. That is a sign of a healty community in
my opinion. That said, I am still sad, that we can't use the logo just
to widespread the word of OsGeo, even if I understand :)

Yeah, that is a good advice. To be honest we released geopaparazzi
only now because of time issues, but I created it as part of my PhD
thesis and presented it already in Sydney. Since then noone complains.
I am wondering about two things:
1) is that because it is a paid application?
2) will I get lawsuited if I have the osgeo compass in my PhD thesis
(available in the net) and in a couple of presentations I gave in the
last year at conferences (all available on slideshare)? It would be
bad to take them back, but if I have to...
