Gimp trademark.

Hello.
I was trying for two days to find a mail from Gimp developers to contact them directly byt i did't find them or some of them where not working so i hope this message will find the way to the people responsible to that question.

I'm a student of WSTI in Katowice and i'm working with other students on our magazine for students called Artboard, here are two links to the magazine online preview:
http://issuu.com/wstikatowice/docs/artboard http://issuu.com/wstikatowice/docs/artboard_plus_nr2

I'm writting an article about where can students get god sofrware on a commercial/academic/free license and i would like to use the Gimp logo. Will you give me the premission to use that logo in our magazine? (the magazine will be aviable for free, it will not be selled)

I am looking forward to hearing from you. Christian Szczepanik

You can use the GIMP logo, and even sell your magazine if you wanted. There is no "non commercial" restriction on the use of the logo. From what I see in the original SVG source file, our logo is under a Creative Commons by-sa 3.0
(http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/) license, created by Jakub Steiner (Jimmac).
You can get it there (you'll get the source SVG and renders at various sizes): https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp/tree/desktop So there is no problem in using in your magazine.

Also if your goal is for students to find good software, I would advise you don't just name them but also write down the exact address where to find them (for GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ ). We have regular cases of malwares trying to spread by usurping GIMP names. So users should only download GIMP from the official place, or some well known and trusted third-party. Regards,
