Guidelines and License Agreement for Use of OFC/NFOEC TrademarkCome back beginning in June for information on the 2014 Conference, meanwhile enjoy a retrospective look at the 2013 Conference.
The "Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exposition" and "National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference" names and the "OFC" and "NFOEC" acronyms are registered trademarks of OSA – The Optical Society.
OSA hereby grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free license to use the OFC/NFOEC logo and web banners ("Marks") solely for the purpose of promoting OFC/NFOEC and identifying Exhibitors' affiliation with OFC/NFOEC. This license shall be valid through the conclusion of the OFC/NFOEC at which Licensee is an exhibitor, unless revoked prior to that time by OSA.
Licensee is permitted to use the Marks as long as it complies with all standards, policies, and procedures issued by OSA, OFC/NFOEC, its sponsors OSA and IEEE, and/or show management. Permitted uses of the Marks include:
stating that the Licensee is an OFC/NFOEC contracted Exhibitor, if applicable;
using the Marks on the Licensee's website (so long as the Marks are accompanied by a hyperlink to www.ofcnfoec.org); and
using the Marks on other materials to promote OFC/NFOEC and/or to identify Exhibitors' affiliation with OFC/NFOEC, provided that the materials meet the following:
the OFC/NFOEC logo is imprinted or affixed adjacent to the individual or company name and a statement of the Licensee's relationship to OFC/NFOEC;
the size of the OFC/NFOEC logo is not larger than the Licensee's or another party's logo; and
a sample of any such materials is sent to OFC/NFOEC Show Management.
Use of the Marks is limited to products and materials consistent with OFC/NFOEC's purpose, which is to disseminate knowledge and promote the development and application of optics. The Marks may not be used in any manner which implies endorsement by or affiliation with OFC/NFOEC, or its sponsors, OSA and IEEE, other than as an OFC/NFOEC contracted Exhibitor, or in any other manner which is in conflict with OFC/NFOEC and its sponsors OSA and IEEE's philosophies or principles as expressed in OSA's and IEEE's standards, policies and procedures. The Marks may not be used in connection with any event, publication, or website that may conflict or compete with OFC/NFOEC. All use of the Marks must be truthful and not misleading.
The OFC/NFOEC logo consists of the letters "OFC" and "NFOEC" in solid type. The "O"s may or may not be stylized. In addition, the conference year may or may not be included. None of the words may be abbreviated or translated, as in non-English documentation. The Marks may not be altered in any way.
From time to time, Show Management may ask Licensee to provide a sample of its websites and of materials on which the Marks are used so that Show Management can determine whether the Marks are being used in the manner which complies with this policy.
OFC/NFOEC Show Management, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether any use of the Marks is consistent with OFC/NFOEC and its sponsors, OSA and IEEE's standards, policies and procedures. OSA reserves the right to control the quality of all promotional and other materials on which the Marks are used. OSA reserves the right to cancel, change and/or update these guidelines from time to time without notice. OSA reserves the right to limit or revoke this license to use of the Marks at any time. Upon expiration or revocation of this license, Licensee will no longer have the right to use the Marks in any manner, may not distribute any materials containing the Marks that it may already have prepared, and must immediately remove any Marks from its website.
If you have any questions regarding proper use of the Marks, please contact email@example.com.
By using the logos, Licensee hereby consents to these terms and agrees to comply with these guidelines.
