IMPORTANCE OF Industrial Internet Consortium NAME AND TRADEMARKS

The Industrial Internet Consortium corporate name, the Industrial Internet Consortium logos and other Industrial Internet Consortium trademarks and service marks (collectively, the "Industrial Internet Consortium Marks") are among the most critical elements of Industrial Internet Consortium's identity and convey many aspects of our business. The Industrial Internet Consortium Marks are widely recognized, positive industry symbols and can be a very effective way to highlight your commitment to distributed object computing. The strength of the Object Management Group and the Industrial Internet Consortium Marks can help command higher prices, larger market share, strong customer commitment and can open the door to new business opportunities. Industrial Internet Consortium members are encouraged to collectively help us build our brands.
Industrial Internet Consortium's purpose is to promote software specifications and standards. Industrial Internet Consortium has many names for its specifications, and strong brand names can command larger market shares and stronger customer commitment. When we talk about these products, we do so in a consistent manner and associate the product name to the Industrial Internet Consortium brand to reinforce the brand identity.

The Industrial Internet Consortium Marks are available for use on a case-by-case review basis by members, non-members and Industrial Internet Consortium partners for a variety of marketing and educational purposes. Opportunities include product packaging, signs and graphics, advertising, press releases, Web pages, presentations, technical documentation and more. This document provides the basic style guidelines with which to ensure consistency.


REQUESTS FOR USE

Industrial Internet Consortium members and others interested in using Industrial Internet Consortium Marks for appropriate marketing and educational purposes should submit the "Request to Use Industrial Internet Consortium Trademarks" form.  All requests for use of Industrial Internet Consortium Marks will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Actual usage of the Marks will also be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.


Industrial Internet Consortium LOGOS

The Industrial Internet Consortium Marks that are graphic logos are the visual representations of the organization. Each represents Industrial Internet Consortium and its standards in a unique way to customers and to the public. As a symbol, each Mark is the prime vehicle for establishing presence and identity.

  • Use Industrial Internet Consortium Artwork - Do Not Re-Design the Logos
     
  • Where you choose to use both your own unique company identifier(s) or graphic style along with the Industrial Internet Consortium identity (logo) system, your business identity must be presented in the dominant style, always larger than the Industrial Internet Consortium Identity graphic. In addition, the two must be separated and presented as two separate and distinct elements.
     
  • Use the "Graphic Styles for Industrial Internet Consortium Logos" at http://www.iiconsortium.org/legal/graphical_style.htm.
     
  • The Industrial Internet Consortium marketing department at +1-781-444 0404 or trademarks can supply a simplified logo graphic format of an Industrial Internet Consortium logo for use on clothing or marketing incentives.

PROPER USAGE OF Industrial Internet Consortium TRADEMARKS AND LOGOS

Unless you have express, prior, written permission from Industrial Internet Consortium:

  • Do not use Industrial Internet Consortium Marks in any manner, except in making objectively truthful, factual references to Industrial Internet Consortium and the specifications provided by Industrial Internet Consortium.
     
  • Do not use Industrial Internet Consortium Marks as all or part of a product name or in or on any product, packaging, labels, advertisements, press releases, marketing materials, web pages, trade show materials, or any other materials.
     
  • Do not use Industrial Internet Consortium Marks in any manner that might be understood to suggest an association with or sponsorship by Industrial Internet Consortium, nor an endorsement (express or implied) by Industrial Internet Consortium of a training program, seminar series, or product. However, Industrial Internet Consortium Marks may be used as part of a truthful statement that a company is an "Industrial Internet Consortium Member" or "Industrial Internet Consortium Strategic Partner".
     
  • Do not attempt to claim trademark rights in any Industrial Internet Consortium Mark by using or registering an Industrial Internet Consortium Mark as all or any part of a product or service name, trademark, service mark, logo, domain name, trade name, or "doing business as" name (d/b/a).
     
  • Do not use Industrial Internet Consortium Marks in any fashion that could result in a likelihood of confusion between Industrial Internet Consortium specifications and services and the goods and services of any other entity.
     
  • Always use Industrial Internet Consortium Marks consistently and distinctively, distinguishing our marks from other words in the text in some way. This distinction includes capitalizing all letters in the trademark, except in cases where the mark specifically includes lower-case letters, using initial caps or initial caps with quotation marks, using italics, boldface, underline, or color. Do not abbreviate trademarks or use only a portion of a mark.
     
  • Do not refer to a product as being "Industrial Internet Consortium" or "Industrial Internet Consortium certified" except with prior written permission from Industrial Internet Consortium.
     
  • Trademarks are adjectives, and must only be used as such. Marks should never be used as nouns or verbs, nor should marks be pluralized or used in the possessive form.
