Please careful with Java Logo (cup of coffee), long time ago it is
trademark of Sun and they protected it very well, some website get a
letter of trademark stuff because of that logo. Same with duke logo as

I thinks it is best to check with sun/java regarding the usage of its
logo (duke or cup of coffee).
If I am not wrong (need verification) since last year, sun make it
easy to use those logo

In related to
- duke logo,  https://duke.dev.java.net/
  Good:) now it is bsd license, someone who have knowlegde of law
should see that site, whether it is permisable to use it.
- java logo, cup of coffee, java powered logo
  someone who have knowlegde of law should see that site, whether it
is permisable to use it.
  note: it is a bit complex because of many variations.

Important: I am not lawyer.
