So we've almost got a trademark policy. To finish it, we need an answer
to a few questions:
Should it say "Free and Open Source Software" or just "Open
Do we want to allow the name in other products? For instance if
there was an "Inkscape Gradient Snagger" would that be okay as
Do we want to restrict use of the logo to unmodified versions?
This would be things like showing half of it, or perhaps
different gradients to match a particular style.
Do we want to allow merchandise with the Inkscape logo on it?
T-shirts, stickers, etc.
Now my answers :-)
I think "Free and Open Source" is best. I hate the debate, but
it is what we're doing.
I think that using the name in other products is fine as long as
they don't cause confusion, which is covered explicitly in other
sections, so I'm cool with it.
I like the idea of people being creative with our logo, so I'm
for not having any restrictions there.
I'm okay with other people making Inkscape merchandise. I think
we should encourage them to give back, but not have any
requirement to do so.
Any other opinions?
