IMDB staff: I am starting a media review site, where I post an "IMDB" button which links to the page on IMDB. I would like a written letter in the form of an email allowing me to use your logo as the button image. How do I go about doing so, since this seems to be the only way to contact you.

You can contact staff directly using the "contact us" link at the bottom of IMDb pages, if you can make your way through the other options and find the link, but here it is:

There's no need to ask permission to use a logo for the purpose of linking back to IMDb.com as long the source is acknowledged. As already mentioned by Emperor, this is explicitly allowed and we have a small logo that you can use -- see details at http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?ho...

I'm not sure what needs answering - IMDB's logo is yellow and that is part of their branding. I'd imagine they won't do a green one.
