So are you saying that a Wikipedia community is allowed to develop an
EDP saying that _logos_ received from 3rd party owners under, say,
CC-BY-ND [and possibly even -NC, but let's not get to the problems
with that] are acceptable? I was told that this is not correct and the
resolution allows only for EDP recognizing copyright limitations
existing in national copyright laws (even though I do not see this in
the resolution text).
