This policy describes wapm trademarks and how you may use them. For information on what to do if someone infringes a trademark of yours with a confusing package name, see the Dispute Resolution Policy.
The wapm project contains two main parts:
"wapm" and the wapm logos are trademarks owned by Wasmer, Inc. We have developed this trademark usage policy to make it clear how other businesses and projects can (and cannot) use the wapm name and logos.
"Nominative" or "referential" use means to refer to something or someone else by their trademark. So it's perfectly OK to use "wapm" to refer to Wasmer, Inc., the wapm client, wapm code, and the wapm public registry. A referential use is generally going to be in a sentence or sentence fragment, like "first install the wapm client," or in a book or article title. The use should not be attention-getting or potentially misperceived as suggesting "wapm" is your own name, project, product or services.
It is not a referential use to incorporate the letters "wapm" or any of the wapm logos in the name or logo for your own company or its projects, products, services or social media handles.
If you need to use "wapm" to indicate compatibility, you should use "wapm" after your own product or service name and an accurate preposition:
You need to ask for permission for any uses not described. When in doubt about your use of the wapm name or logo, please contact Wasmer, Inc. for clarification.
We like to make it easy for anyone to use the wapm name or logo for community-oriented efforts that help spread and improve wapm. We are therefore likely to grant permission to use the wapm name and logo in the following ways:
For projects where:
For a user group name where:
Any other requests are not likely to be granted licenses, but feel free to ask.
Our wapm Logos are very recognizable and deserves special treatment. The wapm Logos signify us, or a special relationship with us, and you may use them only with our permission. Since the goal is to avoid confusion about you being us, or your relationship with us, context counts. We will consider requests on a case-by-case basis.
