Legal to use the Java Logo?
First time poster and not sure I am posting this question in the right area but I am curious if anyone knows the legality of using the Java logo on my website. I have done some research online and can't find a real clear answer. I found something on Oracle's sit that says, "Oracle does not authorize the use of the Java logo." I don't know if that means another group/company decides who can use the logo or if no one is allowed to use it. Thanks for any help.
