Licensing of big Aurora and Nightly logos at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/styleguide/identity/firefox/channels/

Hi.

<https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/legal.html#site> says most of the
content of the website is under the CC BY-SA v3.0 license.  It lists
exceptions, among which is:
“The trademarks and logos of the Mozilla Foundation and any third party
and the look and feel of this web site (to the extent the look and feel
elements are works of authorship, such as the graphic design, artwork,
and artistic illustrations) are not included in the work that is
licensed under the Creative Commons terms.”

1. Does that exception include both copyright and trademark rights?
2. Does that exception apply to the big Aurora and Nightly logos at
<https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/styleguide/identity/firefox/channels/> as
well?

Creative Commons is a copyright license, so that exception applies
specifically to copyright rights. However, as the default for trademarks
is "can't use", without an explicit trademark license, using our
trademarks is also not allowed.

Basically, don't pretend to be us, or our website :-)

I believe it may do, yes. The logo available for everyone to use is the
globe-without-the-fox.
