Matthias Bläsing commented on NETBEANS-2417:
--------------------------------------------

I stated it already in the associated PR: The branding guidelines are of 
secondary concern. The branding assets on the page can't be used, as no license 
is attached to them. No license means, that we can't use the logos (copyright). 
Acceptable licenses are listed in the Apache legal faq: 
[https://apache.org/legal/resolved.html] (Category A preferred, Category B ok). 
Everything else will be painful in the long run.

For npm a similar discussion was done - the "official logo" was not provided 
under a usable license, so the logo was retrieved from a secondary source, that 
licensed the artwork as CC-0 and was updated to match our expectations. The 
trademark question (may we use a potential trademark), was positively answered 
by apache legal. That is the icon represents the "referenced" product in 
situations where the name would not be appropriate (representing file types).

Long story short: To use the "official" gradle logo, it needs to be provided 
under an acceptable license. The licenseinfo.xml needs to be updated to reflect 
that license.

> Thanks again for adding support for Gradle to Netbeans.
> The logo included in Netbeans for Gradle is the pre-2015 Gradleware logo. 
> We've recently published the newest Gradle elephant logos to 
> [https://gradle.com/brand/]. I'd be happy to help make this change if that's 
> easier for everyone.
> Please let me know how I should proceed.
