As an Open Source project, it is important to the Volatility Foundation that any uses of the Volatility trademark are in the spirit of Open Source. The Volatility trademark can be used in ways that further the project, encourage the use of Volatility, and benefit the overall good of the Volatility community. The Volatility trademark gives users the assurance and confidence that the project is built by or endorsed by a specific community, group, or person. Any non-nominative commercial use that does not contribute to the benefit of the Volatility community or is a veiled advertisement for a non-endorsed commercial service or product is not authorized. It is unfortunate that the Volatility Foundation and other Open Source projects have been forced to spend the time and resources to address these sorts of violations. Trademark law requires that trademark holders actively protect their trademark or they risk losing it.
If you have any questions or concerns about a particular usage of the Volatility trademark, the Volatility Foundation would be happy to help provide clarification. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have. Special licenses have been granted to organization and individuals that have established a reputation through contributions and furthering the mission of the foundation.
