Speaking as the designer of the Mopar Mailing List logo (which
incorporates the old Chrysler Motors Corporation "Pentastar" trademark
with Chrysler's permission), I don't mind it a bit.  One way
corporations have destroyed an incredible amount of good-will in the
past has been by trying to retain a too-tight control over their
trademarks (Paramount's actions regarding Star Trek sites comes to
mind, and shutting down various fan activities that infringe.  Letting
members of a community use the trademark on a t-shirt is a really
cheap (in fact, free) way to keep the community on your side.

I expect they'll be much, much tighter about Openmoko-branded
peripherals and USB sticks!
