Description

For reference, here's the text of a basic trademark complaint for name and logo misuse. Please contact me (wseltzer@torproject) if you see a likely infringement, and do not file such issues in trac.

[trademark statement]

The Tor Project, Inc. has a U.S. trademark registration, Registration Number 3,465,432, for the mark "Tor" for computer software for anonymous Internet browsing. The Tor Onion Logo is U.S. Trademark Registration Number 3,465,433.

Further, The Tor Project, Inc. has common law usage rights in the U.S. and other jurisdictions, based on the software produced and distributed at https://www.torproject.org/

The app calling itself [appname] and using the Tor Onion Logo is not produced or authorized by The Tor Project, Inc., and is likely to cause consumer confusion about the source and qualities of the app.
