Actually not sure. It was posted in this thread where the author says that "Permission is herbey granted to display it in the Mediawiki installation at btrfs.wiki.kernel.org for an indefinite time. Should you need it for any other purpose, please contact me. I consciously did not license the code as GPL, CC or anything else, as this would mean people could use it for other purposes than btrfs. not the idea of a logo."
I found that information just now and honestly I'm surprised it's not under GPL or CC, which in my opinion would be easier, as I don't really understand the concern about using it "for other purposes". As I'm not an expert in licensing, I would gladly hear someone's else opinion if we should stop using it. --Michal Rostecki (talk) 15:00, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
