:(  That causes it's own set of issues.

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SVG
It's a web standard for vector graphics in XML. PNG, JPG, etc are raster 
graphics which is a grid of pixels which can have problems scaling. 
Vector graphics are stored as mathematical formulae for line segments. 
Vector graphics look good at any scale or resolution.

In graphics guy parlance, ask that the artist give you a version in 
Adobe Illustrator instead of Photoshop.

I would normally recommend one of the creative commons licenses, but I'm 
not sure because this is the logo for OpenAFS, which doesn't really 
exist. The other option would be to trademark it or something. I'm just 
thinking that we need to allow for the logo to be used in association 
with OpenAFS, but not be able to be hijacked by some nefarious person. I 
guess just leave it for now and just say that it can be used for the 
software, workshops and web site, but nowhere else, assuming the 
question arises.

Just trying to help.
