I think as long as your work adheres to The Definition you're good to go.
http://www.oshwa.org/definition/ But, in practice, I think as long as
you're not actively working against The Definition nobody's going to have a
problem with you using the logo. I can't speak for the OSHWA, but it seems
like they don't put a lot of effort into policing a fine line between who
gets to use the logo and who doesn't.
