Actually, we just like people to ask, and we generally encourage using
the logos as a mark of support.  The phrasing has more to do with
discouraging companies from doing anything fraudulent with the logos
(eg, advertising broken support or the like).

Unlike the other codes, we never really finished a logo for Theora
that we all liked.  We've used the generic fish and the fish-on-film
but it was never official enough to have a master.  But we probably do
have a high res or vector version somewhere.

Ivo: We should bring this up at tomorrow's Theora roadmap meeting.  I
have a plan :-)
