Well, I'm not sure, but I think that many companies have some very
strict policies about how their names are used, and even more their logos.
I use boost at work in my company. But I guess that if I told you to use
this company name, without checking with the company lawers and the
communication department, I would get into trouble.
What might happen is that many small companies would agree easily, but
very few big companies, where administrative stuff is more
"brazil-like". I'm not sure wether seing many name I've never heard of
and no known name would be good or bad advertising. So I suggest that
before getting such a page online, it would be good to wait until there
are enough names, with some well knows ones.
