Because we asked them first. That's why it's ok for us :)

I don't really mind them using the name (even though I think they should
at least add TFS or TF to it) and that logo. But I would mind having
them send their lawyers (after all, there's a company behind the
project) after us. Because even if we're definitely using the name/logo
longer than they do (at least in public), we couldn't afford a lawsuit
and would lose anyway.
