Personally, and yes I realize they sent out the
email with the copyright info, etc, I think this is one area where FIRST is
out-of-bounds. Legally, yes they do have a copyright and want to control
how the logo is used, however, we are talking about teams of young
kids that pay big bucks to participate, generally hold FIRST in very high
regard, are the best advertising FIRST could ever wish to have, and are not
trying to use the logo to make money.
That having been said, I'd say (disclaimer: I am
not a lawyer nor do I play one on tv), do what you need to do to get the
logo on the sleeve of your team's shirt. If FIRST wants to come down to Va
and cutoff the sleaves and/or confiscate the shirts, so be it.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] FLL and Body Forward
I am trying to add an FLL and/or Boday Forward logo to the sleeve of our
team's shirt, but am having difficulty with the design standards. They
say that you can't put them in a shape or add a border, but to print them onto
a dark shirt, I need to print them onto a white background first. When I
trim that bachground, they will technically be in a shape. Is
that a violation? Can I use the poster image instead? (http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/resourcecenter.aspx?id=16952
It is already has a dark background, and I could use that as-is.
