I am creating a book for teachers that will include Audacity. I would like to get permission to publish handouts that include your logo and screen shots. The purpose of the book is for teachers to integrate technology. Is this an option for me? If not what can I do? Audacity is so awesome and I would like to spread the word.
Thanks so much,

Thanks, Chris, and for joining the list.
Subject to the conditions below, you are welcome to use our logo
and screenshots from our web site (or those you took of the Audacity
program), in either your book or in publicity material for it.

The section inside [ ] is optional. Note the first and last sentences
must be presented exactly as above, without any additional text
interspersed into them. The citation could be in a footnote, or on a
Credits page or similar. It could be in very small font on the fliers,
as long as it is there.
The first time you mention the word "Audacity" in the text of book
or flier, please follow it with the trademark symbol (R).

If the publishers of the book require us to sign any permissions form,
please have them e-mail that form to me privately.
