Some of you may have noticed that the new Firefox artwork (icons, about box graphics etc) have not been checked into cvs.mozilla.org.

The new logos, like the name, are trademarks of The Mozilla Foundation. In addition, this new artwork is not licensed under the same licenses as the source code. From the license panel of the Windows installer:

"You are not granted any rights or licenses to the trademarks of the
Mozilla Foundation or any party, including without limitation the
Firefox name or logo."

From what I understand, this does not preclude you from using Firefox artwork if you wish to link to mozilla.org, we're just trying to prevent people from identify themselves AS us, or create builds that masquerade as official builds.

The Mozilla Foundation will be using this new iconography to differentiate official builds from third party ones, so that end users always know that they are using a bona fide Mozilla build when they see the Firefox logo. As a result, permission to use these graphics in custom builds is explicitly NOT granted automatically. Please contact staff@mozilla.org if you have questions.

There's no FAQ for these things. Moving to Builds, if it's really still needed...
