Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-391) Usage of "Maven"?
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2018 23:12:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-391?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16532053#comment-16532053

Shane Curcuru commented on LEGAL-391:
-------------------------------------

To be more precise, MAVEN *is* a trademark of the ASF for our build management software; common
words certainly can be trademarked; however, the scope of protection may be much narrow(er)
for common words. 

We have a guide to determining if another use of an ASF trademark is a problem (below). 
The first step is almost always to ask: is the other party using our name or logo for a downloadable
software product, that has potentially similar functionality to Apache Maven?  If the answer
is no (i.e. for consulting services, like some of those links), then it's rarely an issue
unless there is actual user confusion that's been reported.
