A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination of words, phrases, symbols or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. A trademark does not have to be registered to exist and to be the exclusive property of an entity. Registration simply means that the Trademark Office has acknowledged the trademark and determined that it does not conflict with any other existing trademarks.
At Mirata we want to encourage people to talk about our brand, to use our brand, and to partner with us, however, it is important that we ensure our trademark is protected. Our trademark gives us the exclusive right to use the term as the name of websites, services, businesses and products. Although those rights are exclusively ours, we are happy to give people permission to use the term under certain circumstances.
The following is a general policy that tells you when you can use the Mirata name without need of any specific permission from us:
- You must make clear that you are not Mirata and that you do not represent Mirata - a simple disclaimer on your home page is an excellent way of doing that
- You may not incorporate the Mirata name or logo into the name or logo of your website, product, business or service.
- You may use the Mirata name (but not the Mirata logo) in descriptions on your website, product, business or service to provide accurate information to the public about the relationship between yourself and us.
As a general rule, third parties may not use the Mirata Logo ("Logo"). On this page are the limited circumstances under which third parties may use the Mirata Logo. The Logo must always be used in line with the specifications on this page to identify Mirata, or Mirata products, tools or services. Any use that falls outside of these specifications is strictly prohibited.
Third parties may only use the Logo without a license under the following limited circumstances:
1.1 At the bottom of advertising, marketing collateral, or a website that references your connection with Mirata (for example, the material states that you are an authorized distributor or reseller of Mirata products) provided that the area in which the Mirata logo is used includes the corporate logos of two (2) or more software or hardware companies with which you have a similar relationship.
1.2 In an area of a website, advertising, or marketing collateral exclusively dedicated to the sale of Mirata products, and in such a manner that associates licensed Mirata software with the Mirata Corporate logo.
