It would be nice to give community-developed apps a familiar look and feel. With that in mind, do the SE sites have any high-resolution or scalable icons and images that we can use?

I'm not really sure if there are any legal implications with using an SE logo in our apps, but I thought I should ask anyway.

Am I safe if I mention: "...this product uses the StackOverflow API but is not endorsed or affiliated with StackOverflow...?" – Nathan Osman May 21 '10 at 6:40
That sentence by itself is OK. But just using that sentence wouldn't mean that you could use the logo. – Joel Spolsky May 21 '10 at 6:42
Then what would allow me to use the logo? – Nathan Osman May 21 '10 at 7:44
What if I want to add buttons in my app to connect to SO, SU or SF and I want to put the logo in the button can I do that? – Jedi Master Spooky Jun 2 '10 at 17:43

Update: see this post

This would be very helpful. Though I already used it in mine :)

I think the key here is to make sure it is clear you are not affiliated with StackOverflow. (see the new policy)

I think it would be nice to have SVG versions of the logos though.

I found this it's fairly large, large enough were you should be able to do things with it. I have no idea if we are allowed to use them.

(Un)fortunately, I am not a lawyer. I'm not sure what exactly that means with regards to how I'm allowed to use the logo and such. – Nick Presta May 21 '10 at 6:49
@Nick: It tells you nothing, except who you would need permission from for any activities restricted by copyright/trademark. – SamB May 1 '11 at 1:35
