In the Boost distribution there is the file "boost.png" which contains
the white-background version of the Boost logo. The distribution README
says that all software & documentation without explicit copyright and
license specification are licensed under the Boost Software License 1.0.
I just wanted to ascertain that boost.png is indeed licensed under the
See http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Boost.png for the cause of
my question. While in many jurisdictions, usage of a logo for most
reasonable purposes would be considered Fair Use, Commons requires an
explicit free license.
