Trademark Policy

The name "OASIS", the OASIS corporate logos, and the names and common abbreviations of OASIS specifications are trademarks of the consortium. They should be used only to refer to the organization and its official outputs.

OASIS welcomes references to, and implementation and use of, its specifications. In cases where there may be some confusion about source or authenticity, such as any incorporation of an OASIS mark or name into some other product, service or organization name, OASIS will ask the user to include a clear acknowledgement notice of the use of OASIS trademarks or names in three places: (1) the primary web page referencing the named item, (2) the principal written promotional collateral about it, (3) and any press release regarding it, each in a form such as the following:

"OASIS", ["SAML" and "Security Assertion Markup Language" ] are trademarks of OASIS, the open standards consortium where the [SAML] specification is owned and developed. [SAML] is a copyrighted © work of OASIS Open. All rights reserved.

Note: the terms in [ ] are to be replaced as appropriate in each instance.

OASIS claims no rights in any trademarks, names or logos that are not owned by OASIS. OASIS grants no rights in such marks, names or logos owned by others, regardless of their use in any of its specifications, publications or websites.

In no event shall OASIS or any of its constituent parts (including, but not limited to, the OASIS Board of Directors), be liable to any other person or entity for any loss of profits, loss of use, direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or special damages, whether under contract, tort, warranty, or otherwise, arising in any way out of use of OASIS trademarks or names, whether or not such party had advance notice of the possibility of such damages.

Questions on OASIS trademarks and names may be directed to communications@oasis-open.org. OASIS reserves the right to enforce its marks and copyrights against improper or misleading uses.
