I would like to use the Fiji logo in a scientific publication (in a figure for a software that I wrote to indicate compatibility with Fiji).
May I do so?
I have found no information regarding logo licensing. If it is licensed under the GPL, then I am not sure whether I am able to use it in a “closed-access” journal.
I like the way the Python foundation handles this issue:
Uses that Never Require Approval
All trademarks are subject to “nominative use rules” that allow use of the trademark to name the trademarked entity in a way that is minimal and does not imply a sponsorship relationship with the trademark holder.
As such, stating accurately that software is written in the Python programming language, that it is compatible with the Python programming language, or that it contains the Python programming language, is always allowed. In those cases, you may use the word “Python” or the unaltered logos to indicate this, without our prior approval. This is true both for non-commercial and commercial uses.
