Alicia, I think it would be beneficial to have an OSHWA version of the
"OSHW" Logo that is certified by the OSHWA.

The reason for this is that anyone can easily apply an OSHW logo to
hardware and "claim" its open hardware and then not fulfill the open
promise and reap the rewards of the OSHW Logo's notoriety.

If there was Certified Open Source Hardware Logo program, where people
donated a small fee to the OSHWA to examine the license applied and how the
author has lived up the the OSHW definition it would benefit everyone.

Personally I use CC BY-SA and the OSHW logos on my hardware.

I see this working similar to how other groups like Bluetooth and USB have
logos for hardware.
