Unfortunately, the PostgreSQL project does *not* have a lawyer.   I, 
personally, cannot imagine any such implications, but I am not an attorney.  
In fact, despite having several large corporations offering their case 
studies, La Trobe is the first to ask.

Have you contacted you school's ombusdman (or other legal officer)?   I expect 
that what your PR department wants is reasurrance that posting your case 
study on our site could never lead to a suit against your school, or to the 
school becoming liable for our project's debts in some way.   Only an 
attorney is going to be able to provide such assurance with authority.
