I'm working with the SVG and I could do versions of the other variants too.
The word "free" should be a little bit curved like the book-page behind it. Can you try that? I guess it would look better if the words would really look like imprinted.

I see, it didn't look so small at full size

Yes, I thought the same, but the PUB part is not curved anyway, and it should be, a bit. I don't know if I can curve it with Inkscape, I'll try... For the moment here you have a skewed version.

Just a thought, but if we want/hope epub will become ubiquitous, does it really need a logo associated with both a book and its name? Take for example commonly used PDF logos, they dont have either the word PDF or pictures of documents in them.

No, of course. A logo can be anything nice. I was just taking what I use for a logo in lack of anything better... but having the word ePUB in the logo helps for those that don't know the logo.

Jellby, thank you. I think the curved one looks better.
But the problem is the base line of the words. "PUB" doesn't use the same base line as "Free"...

What about a stylized drawing of a Klein bottle, green for non-drm, red for drm'd, in larger views can have "ePub" subscripted and offset to the image... The imagery could represent information without boundaries. As to the shape of the Klein bottle, I'd recommend something closer to one of these glass bottles then those typically shown for mathematic representations...

Ah, you are beginning to border on a judgment. DRM can be neither good nor bad if you expect the logo to be used. It has to be just information. Placing a judgment on it that non-DRM is good and DRM is bad will cause no publisher to use it.

Ok, change it to green and blue? You didn't mention if you liked the design idea...

In my honst opinion, I'm finding the logo to be rather boring.

If you use red and green, it'll look like a Christmas ornament.

What I really dislike about these logos is that they have to stick it in my face that the ePub is without DRM. And that takes up space and makes the logos look ugly.

Why not an ePub logo for DRM free ePub that doesn't push the fact in your face and one for ePub with DRM. Neither will say DRM free or not. All that will happen is that they will be different and that's how you will know.
