I applaud the effort, and IANAL, but with all due respect, are you certain 
that the license agreement draft says what you intend?

For example, the "non-commercial" word is problematic.  GPL _allows_ 
commercial distribution, and removing that possiblity makes your license 
incompatible with the GPL (which I'm sure you know is VDR's and practically 
all its plugins' license).

I suggest finalizing the license/copyright terms before asking logo copyright 
holders for permission in order to avoid having to ask them again if/when the 
license changes.
