Attempt to avoid misuse of Eclipse Foundation trademarks [message #588413] Mon, 05 November 2007 06:50

This is not specifically a DTP question, but it does pertain to the
project. I've been working on an EMF ODA driver and a couple of other
people have expressed interest in helping out. I'd hope to donate the
product of my/our work to the Eclipse Foundation but understand the IP
donation process can be time-consuming. Though only a modest amount of
code would be involved I suspect it would exceed the size of a typical
patch donation, thus triggering the more rigorous IP approval process.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The question, then, is whether there are any trademarks involved if I
name the project something like "EMF ODA Driver" and host it at another
site. If any trademarks are involved is this an approved practice? If
they are not involved is there any reason I shouldn't use such a name?
Any other advice appreciated...

Jeff
