Re: Use of trademarked operating system icons (eg. Windows logo) in Fedora programs

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Thinking about this a little more, I guess that the answer might
depend upon the specifics of the logo itself.  So here is a list of
the logos I would like to use and as best as I can find it the
information about trademark restrictions for each one.  Or at least
the restrictions that each company is claiming.

-----

- Windows, various logos

- FreeBSD

- Linux "generic" Tux penguin

http://www.isc.tamu.edu/~lewing/linux/

- ArchLinux

http://www.archlinux.org/art/
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:TrademarkPolicy

- Debian ("open use" logo)

http://www.debian.org/logos/#open-use

- Fedora

- Gentoo

http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/name-logo.xml

- Linux Mint

(no logo guidelines AFAICS)

- Mandriva

http://wiki.mandriva.com/fr/uploads/9/9b/Charte_graphique_officielle.pdf
This doesn't give much guidance.

- Meego

http://wiki.meego.com/MeeGo_Style_Guide#Trademark_Usage
http://www.linuxfoundation.org/about/linux-foundation-trademark-usage-guidelines

- Pardus

(can't find any logo usage guidelines)

- Red Hat

http://www.redhat.com/f/pdf/corp/trademark_usage.pdf

- Slackware

http://connie.slackware.com/~msimons/slackware/grfx/grfxfaq.txt
(seems very permissive)

- Ubuntu
