We have just published the maemo trademark policy draft for community
review. Its purpose is to regulate the usage of the maemo mark, owned by
Nokia, basically allowing the good uses and discouraging all the rest.
We have followed a flexible approach similar to the Mozilla Foundation
Trademark Policy and the GNOME Trademark Licensing.

Please have your say. This trademark is also a tool to protect your
interests as maemo users and developers.

The materials:

Start here specially if you are not familiar with trademark texts.
Contains the most essential elements of the rest of documents.

The basic text. Contains the what, the why and the how.

Willing to use the maemo mark? Have a look here for guidance and

The set of official logos. The one that is in the current web header
plus other variants (B/W, 3D, etc).

Of course all the projects/products currently called maemo something can
keep the name. You were quicker than us, well done. You will be subject
to the policy and guidelines, though, just like anybody else (including
i.e. the team running this website).

New projects/products willing to have a name maemo something will need
to contact us for authorization. This is normal practice for the use of
many open source related marks.
