You are probably right, that Zaher has not to worry.

AFAIK in most countries it does not matter if you create a derivative work only

If the new work is a derivative work or if its resemblance is small enough to
claim a new work is a matter of the law+lawyers of the country of whatever
company wants to use this logo. Remember the "red bus" copyright case?
