PSF PyCon Trademark Usage Policy

Version 1.0

"PyCon" Trademark Policy

In order to protect the term "PyCon" against unwanted or misleading use by third parties, the PSF claims the term “PyCon” as a trademark worldwide for conference activities. The PSF is additionally pursuing registration of the mark in various jurisdictions.

It is the policy of the Python Software Foundation to allow the use of "PyCon" for conferences that focus on Python the programming language, have adopted a code of conduct compatible with that of the PSF, and allow anyone to attend the conference subject to a reasonable conference fee. Use of the trademark is subject to approval by the PSF trademarks committee (write to psf-trademarks at python.org).

The PSF may update this policy from time to time. Updates will be published and announced by the PSF.

Version 1.0 of this "PyCon" trademark policy was adopted by the PSF board on 2014-05-16.
