Like any squid, it can eject ink and go dark.

Nettie is artwork, and covered by copyright.  Where it is part of
net2o, you can use it under AGPLv3.  It is not covered as trademark,
but since I've been using it for years now, don't you dare registering

it as trademark; it is a de facto trademark, and protected against
fraudulent registration.  I don't want to exercise this sort of
control.  Any product which implements net2o, or provides services
using net2o can use this logo.  If you don't use the AGPLv3 for your
net2o implementation or services, you have to ask for permission,

though.
