I have written the copyright clerk and the licensing team at the FSF.

There is no intention of starting a war.  I just want them to know what the origin of the logo is.  

I can’t even reach them though.  I tried via twitter, to no avail. And through their audition/demo email. 

Later, GC

I'm not an expert, but we can proove (not only from our website, but
with e.g. GNUstep CDs) that our logo has been around since a long time,
prior to the existence of that band.

A naive strategy would just to contact them to notify the use of the
logo without any "menace" and see what they reply. At least a peaceful
attempt before starting wars.

The issue is "they". the band? the managers? Before going to the label
itself or the app store
