The Debian Project is pleased to announce that, according to the terms
of the new trademark policy [1], Debian logos and marks may now be used
freely [2] for both non-commercial and commercial purposes. The Debian
Project encourages wide use of its marks in all ways that promote Debian
and free software.

Stefano Zacchiroli, current Debian Project Leader and one of the main
promoters of the new trademark policy, said "Software freedoms and
trademarks are a difficult match. We all want to see well-known project
names used to promote free software, but we cannot risk they will be
abused to trick users into downloading proprietary spyware. With the
help of SPI [3] and SFLC [4], we have struck a good balance in our new
trademark policy. Among other positive things, it allows all sorts of
commercial use; we only recommend clearly informing customers about how
much of the sale price will be donated to Debian."

As the arrival of the new stable release, Debian 7.0 "Wheezy",
approaches, vendors are encouraged to create Wheezy-themed merchandise
(t-shirts, stickers, mugs, etc.), using the upcoming release's
artwork [5].

We further invite you to check out the current list of Debian
merchandise vendors [6], and see the information at the bottom of the
page if you would like to be added to it.
