That's fine by me.

A non-free collection with permission by the logo owners would be a
major improvement over the current logo collection, which isn't just
outdated, but also utterly illegal by any standard.

However, I experience the drag of discussing this with logo owners right
now. The ZDF just declined and the BR (which is a reference client of
xeatre.tv, to boot!) is also a tough one so far.

And if my collection turns out to be complete, I'll be co-responsible
when someone abuses it. Oh, don't we all love legal matters?

Regards,

Hanno
