Perguntas Frequentes

Q. Quando deve mostrar a atribuição apropriada?

A: Whenever and however you use the term QGIS in print, on the internet, or in audio broadcasts, you should always give proper attribution to QGIS project. For more information see “Trademark Attribution.”

Q: I am registering or have registered a trademark with my country’s trademark authority. Do I still need a permission?

A: Yes, assuming your trademark includes the element QGIS and it is being used in connection with software-related goods and services. Please note, the permission applies to QGIS trademark whether or not they are registered with a trademark authority. If you are using the term QGIS as a trademark (whether or not registered), you need to apply for a permission.

Q: I am a commercial entity (for example, a company, partnership or sole proprietor, profit or non-profit) selling software-related goods or services and using the word “QGIS” in the entity’s name. Do I need to apply for a permission?

A: Using QGIS in the entity’s name is not permitted because you are using QGIS as part of a trademark in connection with software-related goods or services. Software-related goods are computer programs and systems, or packages bundling software with tools, utilities, hardware, etc. Software-related services are services that deploy, document, facilitate the use of, or enhance computer programs and systems. Even if you don’t use QGIS as part of the entity’s name, if the entity has a product or service (whether sold or given away for free) that uses “QGIS” in its name, you still need a permission for the use of the word QGIS in the name of the products or services.

Q: * Se eu conseguir uma permissão para minha marca registrada, QGIS vai recusar a concessão de permissões semelhantes para as marcas que são idênticos ou confusamente similar a, minha marca ?*

A: No, QGIS will not attempt to ensure exclusivity or protect marks from infringement. QGIS considers the protection of trademarks against infringement to be the responsibility of the trademark owner. QGIS is not a dispute resolution authority, and does not become involved in disputes between trademark owners.

Q * Consentimento de Registro de Marcas: A minha organização solicitou para registrar uma marca para produtos ou serviços relacionados com software que inclui QGIS como um elemento. O pedido foi indeferido por confundir semelhança com a marca QGIS. Se eu entrar em uma permissão, QGIS dará consentimento para meu registro? *

A: No. The QGIS permission is not a consent for the registration of other trademarks. To protect the QGIS mark from dilution, we do not consent to the registration of trademarks found to be confusingly similar to the QGIS mark.
