Unlike rights derived from patents and copyrights, which provide protection for only a limited number of years, trademark rights can last forever. Trademark rights can also be lost forever. The exclusive right granted in a trademark is usually lost as a result of careless or improper use, usually by allowing the mark to be used as generic or descriptive words for products. All of the following were once valuable trademarks in the U.S.A.: aspirin, escalator, cellophane, zipper, shredded wheat, corn flakes and kerosene. All became common or generic words because their owners did not use them carefully and correctly and did not prevent the improper use of them by others. Some of the clauses in this section governing the use of The Open Group Certification Mark logo are inserted to enable The Open Group to preserve these trademarks for the benefit of the IT community.
Use is permitted (and encouraged):

The Open Group Certification Mark logo trademark whenever and wherever it appears must be distinguished from the surrounding text. This applies to all forms of printed media, including advertising copy, product packaging, brochures, manuals, internal memoranda, editorial, articles, correspondence, overhead projector slides and presentation materials, computer video screens, and the World-Wide Web.
Methods of distinguishing a textual trademark include printing it in CAPITALS, italicised text, bold faced text, Initial Capital Letters, or placing the trademark in "quotation marks".
The Open Group Certification Mark logo must stand alone and be surrounded by a generous amount of space. It must not be enclosed within a contrived shape or used as part of another symbol or name. The Open Group logo image files include the surrounding space required when the logo is displayed on computer video screens or the World-Wide Web. The Open Group logo artwork specification defines the surrounding space required in other cases.
Where The Open Group Certification Mark logo is displayed on a computer screen or the World-Wide Web, one of The Open Group logo image files, or an alternative provided by The Open Group, must be used. It must not be re-sized or altered in any way. The Open Group may be able to supply alternative image files in other sizes if requested. Copying of The Open Group logo image files for this purpose is permitted.
In all other cases where The Open Group Certification Mark logo is displayed, The Open Group logo artwork specification must be followed.
