9.   Compatibility

9.1   Nominative Use of Graphene trademarks

Anyone can use Graphene trademarks if that use of the trademark is nominative. The "nominative use" (or "nominative fair use") defense to trademark infringement is a legal doctrine that authorizes everyone (even commercial companies) to use another person's trademark as long as three requirements are met:

  • The product or service in question must be one not readily identifiable without use of the trademark; 
  • Only so much of the mark or marks may be used as is reasonably necessary to identify the product or service;
  • The organization using the mark must do nothing that would, in conjunction with the mark, suggest sponsorship or endorsement by the trademark holder.

The trademark nominative fair use defense is intended to encourage people to refer to trademarked goods and services by using the trademark itself.  This trademark defense has nothing to do with Copyright fair use and should not be confused with those rules.

9.2   “Confusing similarity" or "likelihood of confusion" test

Some uses of another person's or Company trademark are nominative fair use, but some uses are simply infringing.  Indeed, if a trademark is used in such a way that the relevant consuming public will likely be confused or mistaken about the source of a product or service sold or provided using the mark in question, then likelihood of confusion exists and the mark has been infringed.

Note that, even if there is no likelihood of confusion, you may still be liable for using another Company's trademark if you are blurring or tarnishing their mark.

9.3  Designers and Developers may use Graphene, or any other Graphene word mark (but not the Graphene® logo or other Graphene-owned graphic symbol or logo) in a referential phrase on promotional or advertising materials, to describe that the third party product is compatible with the referenced Graphene Service or Technology, provided they comply with the following requirements:

  •  The Graphene® word mark is not part of the product name.
  •  The Graphene® word mark is used in a referential phrase. 
  •  The Graphene® word mark appears less prominent than the product name.
  •  The service or product or technology is in fact compatible with, or otherwise works with, the referenced Graphene® Service or Technology.
  •  The reference to Graphene® does not create a sense of endorsement, sponsorship, or false association with Graphene® or Graphene® Services or Technologies.
  •  The use does not show Graphene® or its Service & Technology in a false or derogatory light.


10.   Publications, Seminars and 

Conferences 

Publications, Webpages included, Seminars and Conferences may use a Graphene word mark in connection with book titles, magazines, periodicals, seminars, or conferences provided you comply with the following requirements:

  •  The use is referential and less prominent than the rest of the title.    
  •  The use reflects favorably on both Graphene and Graphene Service or Technology.
  •  Your name and logo appear more prominent than the Graphene word mark on all printed materials related to the publication, seminar or conference.
  •  A disclaimer of sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement by Graphene, similar to the following, is included on the publication and on all related printed materials: 

“(Title)  is an independent  (publication)  and has not been authorized, sponsored, or otherwise approved by Graphene"

  •   A trademark attribution notice is included in the credit section giving notice of Graphene’s ownership of its trademark(s).
