Ciao Lorenzo,
for the Italian language chapter we asked for the permit to Taylor and 
then we added the .it to the OSGeo logo.
I immagine you could do the same for the spanish local chapter...
But I see the need for a better and more defined rules for local chapter 
logos, so that they can be standardized all over the world...
