Copyright issues for logos?

I want to use the GNOME foot, the KDE cog and the XFCE cross logos for the respective desktop group icons in gnome-packagekit.


Copyright issues? Trademarks? Am I allowed to ship these icons in the tarball? The licence of gnome-packagekit is GPLv2+ if that helps. Advice appreciated.
