Introduction

The DAISY Consortium is the owner of the logos and trademarks of the DAISY Consortium. This document explains the policy and provides the license associated with the usage of the individual logos and trademarks.

The following DAISY Consortium logos and marks have specific policies and licenses associated with their use:

DAISY Consortium logo
DAISY Consortium ™ (logo)
 
DAISY OK ™ (logo) and DAISY Certified ™ (text trademark)
Note: The DAISY OK Logo and the DAISY Certified trademark require written permission for their use.

In most cases, DAISY Consortium logos and marks may be used without requesting permission from the DAISY Consortium, providing the usage conforms to the policy and license provided below. When the logo and trademark usage policy requires that you obtain express written permission, please send your request to the DAISY Consortium Staff by using the Contact Us form.

Without altering the text or images of the marks or logos, you may create local copies of these logos at your site or include by reference the versions at the DAISY Consortium site. If you make local copies, you should check periodically for updates from the DAISY Consortium (e.g., to account for small changes or new formats).

DAISY Consortium Logo and Trademark License

The DAISY Consortium grants you the rights to use DAISY Consortium Logos and Trademarks and Service marks (collectively the "trademarks"), provided that you agree to the following terms and conditions:

  1. DAISY Consortium Members and Friends, in good standing, may use the DAISY logos and trademarks to indicate their affiliation with the DAISY Consortium.
  2. Companies and organizations who wish to promote the mission and specifications associated with the DAISY Consortium are encouraged to use the logos and trademarks for that purpose.
  3. The owner of DAISY Consortium logos and trademarks must be clearly identified as the DAISY Consortium. For example, "DAISY, A Better Way to Read is a trademark of the DAISY Consortium."
  4. When used on the Web, the logo must be associated with an active link to http://www.daisy.org/.
  5. Except for the DAISY OK logo and DAISY Certified trademark which require express written permission, the logo and trademarks must not be used in any manner which implies DAISY Consortium sponsorship or endorsement of your product, service, or Internet site.
  6. The DAISY logos and trademarks must not be used in product names. This would imply product endorsement and the DAISY OK and DAISY Certified are more appropriate for this purpose.
  7. The logo or trademarks may not be used to disparage the DAISY Consortium, its Member organizations, Friends, services, or products.
  8. The logo must stand alone: it cannot be combined with any other design element such as photography, type, borders, nor can it be incorporated into another logo.
  9. The DAISY Consortium will audit the use of the DAISY Consortium logos and trademarks to determine compliance with these terms and conditions.
  10. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE DAISY Consortium, its Board of Directors, AGENTS, OFFICERS, MEMBERS, or staff BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO USE OF DAISY Consortium TRADEMARKS, INCLUDING ECONOMIC DAMAGES AND LOST PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER the DAISY Consortium SHALL BE ADVISED, SHALL HAVE OTHER REASON TO KNOW, OR IN FACT SHALL KNOW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE FOREGOING.
  11. Should for whatever reason the DAISY Consortium determine that your use of the Trademarks or the products/services used in conjunction with the Trademarks are not accord with the DAISY mission or its standards of quality and excellence, this license may be revoked at any time and the licensee must immediately take steps to remove the Trademarks from all licensed products and/or services.
