Thanks for the quick reply.

So i take it that the state of the license is unclear at the moment.
Provided that the license is indeed GPL2 or later, i have no problem
releasing my work under the same license. It is just that the GPL seems a
little bit weird as a license for media files.

I contacted the STK devs on IRC and they said it would be acceptable for
them to license contributions under the GPL2. CC BY-SA 3.0 is just the
preferred license.
Meaning if you or somebody else could confirm the logo is indeed licensed
under the GPL2, i could go along and post my work for inclusion in the next
major version.
