Apache CloudStack, CloudStack, the CloudStack word design, the Apache CloudStack word design, the cloud monkey logo, either separately or in combination are hereinafter referred to as "CloudStack Trademarks" and are trademarks or registered trademarks of the Apache Software Foundation. Excepting the provisions outlined below you may not use the CloudStack trademarks or any confusingly similar mark as a trademark for your product, to imply endorsement by the project, or use the CloudStack trademarks in any other manner that might cause confusion in the marketplace.

Trademark law dictates that owners must police their marks or risk the loss of the marks.

The Apache Software Foundation has an established trademark policy (http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks) that when in conflict should be considered the canonical standard. However, the Apache Software Foundation has given the responsibility for brand management to the project's Project Management Committee. Thus this document should be taken as additive to the Apache Software Foundation's trademark guideline. Nothing contained herein provides an exception to those guidelines.

Mark usage


The word 'CloudStack' is a registered trademark, and should use the '®' symbol. In places where that symbol is not reasonably used it is acceptable to use '(R)' as an alternative.

Other CloudStack marks

The CloudStack word design, the Apache CloudStack word design, the 'Apache CloudStack' wordmark and the cloud monkey logo are all trademarks and should not appear without the '™' symbol being present.

Exhibiting at Events:

Apache CloudStack committers may, without prior approval, use the CloudStack Trademarks to promote exhibits or sessions at events with the aim to promote Apache CloudStack, though the general adherence to the ASF's trademark guidelines is still required.

Sponsoring Events:

Sponsoring events can provide good visibility for the project, however it frequently requires funds that the project does not have access to. Many outside organizations wish to provide this type of visibility.

The following is required:

If desired by the funding organization, the sponsorship may be discussed on the private@cloudstack.apache.org list, which will follow the same process listed above.

Non-software goods


No additional guidelines are required above and beyond the Third Party Domain Name Branding Policy. In general:

you may not use Apache marks such as "ApacheFoo" or "Foo" in your own domain names if that use would be likely to confuse a relevant consumer about the source of software or services provided through your domain with products or services provided by the Apache Foo project or the Apache Software Foundation as a whole. You should apply the "likelihood of confusion" test described in our formal Trademark Policy, and please realize that the use of Apache marks in third party domain names is generally not "nominative fair use."
