I was thinking about putting it on a t-shirt.

Edit: Maybe this is not appropriate here but I don't know where else to ask. Sorry.

We don't provide a list of the logos for every single one of our sites in any accessible place. However, all of our logos are saved and loaded in an SVG format on-site, so you could easily just download the sprites file from the site and extract the logo out of it in an essentially-vectorized format.

We generally don't care if you print a shirt for your own personal use but we do not allow the use of any of our logos in commercial settings. So you may not print and sell your own shirts with our logo on them.

This goes well beyond Crypto.SE and practically is something for StackExchange Inc. to decide (among legal and other reasons, because they happen produce their own t-shirts).

Therefore, I herewith advise you to contact them directly with alike questions. You can do so via the dedicated contact page which offers a contact form to reach out to the SE team. Simply choose "Other" from the topic dropdown and write your message. I'm sure they'll be happy to answer your question(s).

For your convenience, I've already pinged them while pointing to this question (hoping a SE employee finds the time to post an answer here). That's the best we moderators can do from our side to help. Thanks for understanding.

The sprite atlas animoson mentioned is located at https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/crypto/img/sprites.svg

I extracted the logo part: https://gist.github.com/CodesInChaos/5710b4ad2c0012840da7134774232786

(since the text and part of the icon are white, they're invisible on white background)

Summary: Yes. Yes.


True, it says "site design / logo © 2017 Stack Exchange Inc; user contributions licensed under cc by-sa 3.0 with attribution required" at the bottom of the page.

But more relevant perhaps is whether the logo is in fact copyright-able - does it meet the legal threshold of originality? I looks to me like: It only consists of simple geometric shapes and stylized text. It does not meet the threshold of originality needed for copyright protection, and is therefore in the public domain. It's comparable to the non-copyright-able Best Western logo; see here, here and here for more information.

The first part of your question is answered by CodesInChaos:

The sprite atlas animoson mentioned is located at https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/crypto/img/sprites.svg

I extracted the logo part: https://gist.github.com/CodesInChaos/5710b4ad2c0012840da7134774232786

On the bottom of every page it says that the site design and logo are copyrighted by Stacked change Inc. So you would likely have to get permission first.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ But it also says user contributions are "under cc by-sa 3.0 with attribution required". It is not clear to me which parts of an SX site are provided by users/community and which by the company. $\endgroup$ – Elias Apr 6 '17 at 14:46
