Driven By NetBSD

The "Site Driven By NetBSD" logo is Copyright 1995 Michael Graff. The "daemon" character is Copyright Marshall Kirk McKusick. Here is the info:

Statement on the Use of the BSD Daemon Figure:

Individuals may use the daemon for their personal use within the bounds of good taste (an example of bad taste was a picture of the BSD daemon blowtorching a Solaris logo). When reasonably possible, I would like the text ``BSD Daemon Copyright 1988 by Marshall Kirk McKusick. All Rights Reserved.'' to be included. This text need not be etched into the figure or garishly displayed when using the daemon as say an Icon in a Web window. A good example of how to handle the due credit in a web page is to create a link from the daemon picture to the following text:

BSD Daemon Copyright 1988 by Marshall Kirk McKusick.
All Rights Reserved.
Permission to use the daemon may be obtained from:

If you are looking for daemon images, a pictorial history of the daemon can be found at

If you want to mass produce the daemon on Tshirts, CDROM's, etc you need to request permission in advance. In general, I require that the daemon be used in an appropriate way. This means that it has to be something related to BSD and not expropriated as a company logo (though I do allow companies with BSD-based products such as Walnut Creek CDROM or BSDI to use it). I regret having to be so legalistic about the daemon, but I almost lost the daemon to a certain large company because I failed to show due dilligence in protecting it. So, I've taken due dilligence seriously since then.
