I am a Libyan student at MS GIS Program, University of Redlands, California, US. I am doing Libyan transportation infrastructure inventory to create a topo basemap of Libya as my graduation project, and I am using OSM data. I am going to present my project in UC Esri conference, and I want to use OSM logo on my presentation to identify the source of my data. Can I use OSM logo on my presentation in UC Esri conformance?

While we haven't laid down any hard and fast rules for using the logo and OpenStreetMap trademark, when we eventually get around to doing it (there is such an effort underway that has been stalled), one thing is clear: use by the community/community members to identify products/data from OSM will be supported.

In other words as long as you don't imply that you have any "official" status and you make clear that your project uses OSM data, but is not a product of the OSMF or similar, your use should be completly ok.
