The Vim logo was made by a few people, at least including Vince Negri
and me.  It's hard to say who owns the copyright officially, but I can
claim to make decisions about it, since I decided to use it.

In general you are free to use the Vim logo for promotion of Vim.  No
need to get written permission.  However, if I notice misuse of the Vim
logo I might get furious and poke someone with soft cushions.  Have at

I don't think you need a license for a wallpaper, especially since it
will be hard to match the "license" of the Vim logo.
