They are complaining about the use of the cube logo, the Silicon
Graphics font logos, referring to the workstations in plural such as
"Indigo's", using official pictures and not having a disclaimer that the
site is not authorized by Sgi, no products sold here are warranted or
authorized by Sgi and no warranties as far as the accuracy of
information is given by Sgi.

I put the disclaimers on my site, but no one has asked for the logo to
be removed. I don't have the resources to fight either.
