I updated the current version on the German Wikipedia page.

I want to update the Logo as well. We have to upload the logo to Wikimedia Commons and we have to specify a license. Do we have a copyright text for the logo?

: You uploaded the previous logo to Wikimedia Commons. Any suggestions?

Logo license is in the ownCloud.

actually i think the situation is that we (NovaTec) does have the rights to the logo, but when uploading to wikipedia they want us to provide the logo in an open way (e.g. open-up the license). Under https://inspectit-performance.atlassian.net/wiki/display/LIC/Licensing we describe that the logo and the name of inspectIT can be freely used as long as it is beneficial to the project. So I think that based on this definition the upload of the logo to wikipedia is fine.

We don't want to put it on Wikimedia under a Creative Commons License right? Then we have to enter our own license text including a copyright tag. Copyright holder is NovaTec Consulting GmbH and I would add "The logo and the name of inspectIT can be freely used as long as it is beneficial to and does not harm the project.". The author is the designer. What about excluding modifications that are for example, allowed if we would license it under Creative Commons?
