This Policy defines the allowable use of Eclipse Foundation ("Eclipse") names, marks and logos (referred to herein generally as "Trademarks"). The Policy is intended to protect the goodwill associated with Eclipse trademarks and to promote and improve the consistency of use of Eclipse trademarks across all elements of the Eclipse community and otherwise. This is important to, among other reasons, demonstrate that Eclipse projects are part of a common community of developers, adopters and users, all associated with the highest levels of quality.
Eclipse owns all 'Eclipse' related trademarks and related rights. In addition, while every project manages its own development within the broader Eclipse Development Process, Eclipse holds the trademarks and related rights for the project names and logos on behalf of, and for the benefit of, the Eclipse community as a whole. A collective list of Eclipse trademarks including both registered and unregistered marks can be found at https://www.eclipse.org/projects/tools/trademarks.php. This Policy outlines the position of Eclipse with respect to the use of these trademarks.
If you have any questions regarding this Policy, wish to report an infringement of our trademarks, or wish to use an Eclipse trademark in a way not explicitly provided for in this Policy, then contact us by sending an email to email@example.com.
Our goals in establishing this Policy are:
The 'Eclipse' Trademarks are the intellectual property of the Eclipse and must be identified as such. Eclipse logos are provided for use under the terms of this Policy. Use of the 'Eclipse' name or Eclipse logos are restricted to identifying the Eclipse Foundation, the Eclipse projects, the Eclipse working groups, and their deliverables, as applicable. 'Eclipse' must always be capitalized, except when used as part of an Eclipse logo.
Eclipse logos (including the Eclipse logo, and the logos of Eclipse projects and working groups) cannot be modified in any way without the advanced written permission (email is permissible) of Eclipse. Any Eclipse project or working group that wishes to seek such permission may do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless otherwise agreed to in advance in writing (which may be in email form) by Eclipse, the following restrictions apply:
The use of the 'Jakarta' and 'Jakarta EE' Trademarks is restricted to identifying the Jakarta EE Working Group and its deliverables, as applicable. No other uses of the 'Jakarta' and 'Jakarta EE' names and logos are permitted unless authorized in advance in writing by Eclipse, or in adherence with the Jakarta EE Working Group Trademark Guidelines. Use of the 'jakarta', 'ee.jakarta', or 'org.jakarta' namespaces is not permitted unless authorized in advance in writing by Eclipse.
The Eclipse Project Naming Policy allows for Eclipse projects to have a descriptive name, optional nickname and acronym. These names (e.g. Orion), and acronyms (e.g. BIRT), can be become effective identifiers of certain technologies, and therefore it is important to establish proper usage guidelines. All project names, nicknames, logos, and acronyms are the intellectual property of the Eclipse Foundation and must be identified as such. For clarity, projects are not required to include 'Eclipse' or use the Eclipse logo in their project logos. (Please see proper notice and attribution below.)
The Trademarks of Eclipse Working Groups (WG) are the intellectual property of Eclipse and must be identified as such in all uses. (Please see proper notice and attribution below.) The use of WG names and logos is restricted to identifying the WGs and their deliverables, as applicable. No other uses of WG names and logos are permitted unless authorized in advance in writing by Eclipse. Any organization wishing to seek such authorization may do so by sending an email to email@example.com.
Each WG may, at its discretion, develop guidelines for use of the WG marks, logos and their derivatives, as applicable, by third parties, provided such guidelines are consistent with this Policy. These guidelines will be appended as Appendix A to this document. It is not permitted to create any derivative work of a WG mark or logo without prior written approval of Eclipse, which, in the event of a request, will consult with the Steering Committee of the relevant Working Group. Any organization wishing to seek permission to create a derivative work of any WG trademark may do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of the 'org.locationtech' or 'org.polarsys' namespaces is not permitted unless authorized in advance in writing by Eclipse.
The 'Eclipse Foundation Member' logo is to identify those organizations and individuals that are members of Eclipse. Only current members of Eclipse are authorized to use this logo.
The 'Built on Eclipse' trademark is used to identify a product that includes the core Eclipse IDE Platform, specifically the runtime, SWT, JFace, and generic workbench components. This type of product is able to run standalone with no prerequisites of other Eclipse components. This mark may only be used on products that satisfy this standard.
The 'Eclipse Ready' trademark and logo is used to identify a product that is packaged as an Eclipse IDE feature or plug-in and must be added to an Eclipse platform product. This type of product does not run standalone. This mark may only be used on products that satisfy this standard.
The 'Eclipse Incubation' Trademark and Logo are for use exclusively by Eclipse and the Eclipse projects. Only Eclipse and its projects are authorized to use this trademark and logo. All other use—even by Eclipse members—is prohibited.
The appropriate trademark symbol (i.e. ™ or ®) must appear at both the first and most prominent use of Eclipse trademarks, and with all occurrences of the Eclipse logo. When you use an Eclipse Trademark you must include a statement attributing the trademark to the Eclipse Foundation, Inc. For example, "'Eclipse', 'Built on Eclipse' and 'Eclipse Ready', 'BIRT', 'Orion' are trademarks of Eclipse Foundation, Inc."
