I'm one of these people who are actually 'for' ingame advertising as long as it's not intrusive or immersion-breaking. I have no problems with CIG getting money for Cola / Pepsi / AMD commercials on ingame billboards or stations if they are done classy, in 30th century style. Even better if you can opt out and not see them, or even maybe pay to advertise your own events, radio stations, organizations or channels.
It's a good source of income for CIG and it's way better than usual microtransaction stuff that goes on in MMOs, and if done in moderation it will even enrich the universe and make it more immersive. We already have ship manufacturer commercials in the hangars and stations, it would be even better if we had more variety there.
I'd say the skin above qualifies for this (it's a cool color scheme, the logo is small, the R9 is fitting even without context) even though it might not be the best idea to put it on a starter ship.
