Trademark Uses That Require Approval:
- All Products: All uses of University trademarks on products require prior approval from the UITL, even if the proposed uses do not involve the sale of a product; i.e. promotional items for conferences or meetings, items for fundraisers, gifts, etc.
- Promotional: See Promotional Use Policy.
- Other: All other uses, except those listed in “Trademark Uses That May Not Require Approval.”
Any product bearing UI trademarks or a specific department logo must be purchased from licensed manufacturers. Using an officially licensed company to manufacture a product ensures that the company has provided the correct product liability insurances and signed UI’s code of conduct agreement. For a list of licensees please contact the UITL office.
To ensure consistency in the use of UI trademarks, all product designs must be approved by the UITL before production. In most cases, the manufacturer can submit the design for approval on behalf of the organization/department. However, if there are questions concerning the design, the organization’s representative may contact the UITL directly.
