|[eclipse.org-planning-council] Usage of the New Eclipse Logo|
Dear Leaders of the Eclipse Community [Board, IP Advisory Committee, Architecture Council, Planning Council]
As most of you are aware, Ian and the team have been working hard on creating a new Eclipse Foundation logo.
With a new logo comes an opportunity to enhance our logo guidelines to ensure that our logo is used solely to identify the Eclipse Foundation and its projects. In particular, we would like to avoid the "brand hijack" scenarios that we have with the current logo. For various historical reasons that pre-date the formation of the Foundation, we have never asserted a very strong policy with regards to the use of the Eclipse logo itself.
Therefore we are considering modifying the Guidelines for Eclipse Logos & Trademarks to explicitly state the following. We invite your timely comments and feedback.
Currently, the artwork for the Eclipse logo is made available
under the EPL. Under the new regime, the copyright for the artwork
would be owned by the Eclipse Foundation, and it would only be
licensed as stated above.
Your feedback would be appreciated!
