I noticed that more and more contributors are offering original brand logos as editorial content (as a vector file). Is this even allowed?

This would only be allowed if the submittor provides a complete IP release for each of the design elements. I assume they did this. They've pretty much covered the territory though.

Honestly, I doubt that there is any permission for that. According to Google, for example, the "G" as a logo (as it is used here) may not be used by third parties. Google writes about this on their website: "Google G - Third parties are not permitted to use the Google G. It’s reserved for Google products and marketing materials."

So I'm really not sure how Adobe can approve this.

Font Awesome, Glyphicons and many, many others make social media icons available for use on websites. This is nothing new.  If icons were so heavily restricted that nobody used them, then what would become of the social media channels?  Just saying.  Honestly, social media needs us more than we need them.
