Hi Raj,

Ben is absolutely right. Feel free to use the logo in your presentations.

Rationale: I made that logo so that people could associate something visible with VOLK. Now, having a logo that no-one uses is pretty much stupid, hence, you should feel more than welcome to use it, especially when talking about GR, VOLK, FOSS DSP & SDR, SIMD etc.

The only thing that I don't want to happen with that logo is that someone takes it, slaps it onto his product/website/… and (inherently) claims he "owns" VOLK. So, mandatory attribution is totally sufficient to solve that issue.

Hence, I put that logo under CC-by-SA; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ , so: use it as much as you want, as long as you refer to libvolk.org as source.

Hi Raj -

Thanks so much for checking! We really appreciate it. Yes, you may use the logo for that purpose.

We intend to get a page up on the new website that clearly lays out the various licenses used for GNU Radio IP, but haven't gotten around to it, yet. Your e-mail is a good example of why this would be helpful.

I will also be at the Symposium next week. I look forward to meeting you!

I'm not doing anything sinister :-)

I'm just using it on a slide talking about VOLK. Even if it's for the purposes of comment, scholarship, teaching, and research, I try to do my due diligence to give proper attribution in such talks and just noticed the CC license discrepancy.

See attached for the slide. It's part of a talk to be given here https://wireless.vt.edu/agenda.html and I'm looking forward to meeting your some of your Ettus colleagues who will be attending.
