Usage

Use this template only if the trademarked material is in the public domain or is under a free license: for example, if it is ineligible for copyright status, or has been specifically released by the owner under a free-content license such as the GFDL. In most cases, the {{non-free logo}} template message should be used instead. Text that explicitly identifies the owner of the trademark should optimally be added to the image description page. See also Wikipedia:Logos.

Example of appropriate use: File:Los Angeles Times.svg consists only of short text in a certain font, so it almost certainly does not meet the threshold of originality for copyright protection in the United States. Nevertheless, it is still subject to trademark protection.
