The published book of OWASP Top 10 (copies available at the information booth here at AppSec EU) would be a good example of a end result that OWASP is interested in as a published document project without any sort of contractual terms associated with corporate supporter membership.

My firm has volunteered to take responsibility for the survey execution, analysis and production (although we will certainly welcome assistance from others within OWASP).  Because we're doing the heavy lifting, we want to co-brand the survey with our logo.  This is the same kind of agreement that we have with numerous other non-profits for whom we perform such surveys and is similar to Aspect's co-branding of some ESAPI products.

I'd be extremely concerned about a survey executed by OWASP where we don't retain the rights of distribution. It goes against the open principles of OWASP and has borderline potential for brand abuse.
