Dear Arid Sweeting,
R-help is probably not the place to ask this question, although perhaps
since you're seeking moral advice, people might want to say something. I
would normally expect to see a query like this addressed to the R
website webmasters, of which I'm one -- with the caveat that the R
Foundation doesn't give legal advice.
Just to be sure, you say that you read the rules for use of the R logo,
so I assume that you've seen <https://www.r-project.org/logo/>, which
seems entirely clear to me. I think that it's safe to say that if the R
Foundation wanted to limit commercial use of the R logo, it wouldn't
have released it under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license. I'm not sure what moral
issues concern you.
I hope this helps,
John Fox, Professor Emeritus
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
