Humm. You got me wrong. I meant: "Who gave them the right to create such a logo?"
In my opinoin, they may create a Logo: "Linux Jounal approved: It runs with Linux 1.2.13"
for example. This would be OK. Who is the ultimate Authouritative Institution
which can decide "It runs with Linux" except for all Linux-Users ? :)
