What do we mean by talking about the OpenOffice.org logo?

This is the present OpenOffice.org logo:

Are you allowed to use the logo?

Because of the necessity to protect the brand OpenOffice.org our logo is not licensed under an open source license. As it is trademarked you are allowed to use it if you follow the Trademark Policy, which allows you to use our brand to refer to our product and our community only. Follow the simple steps to request permission.

How should you use the logo?

Our logo should be presented in a way that refers to our product and/or our community in a respectful and not misleading way. At the same time we want to strengthen the OpenOffice.org brand by providing a consistent visual impression of our logo.

We want to achieve these goals by the rules and recommendations brought together in these guidelines:

Trademark Symbol

Do not remove the ™ (trademark symbol)



The best font to use in combination with the OpenOffice.org logo is the open font M plus 1p with broad support of non-Latin areas in Unicode.

If a designer is able to do so, we recommend to round the rectangular dots in the font when creating a graphical work containing this font.
