Java Affinity Mark and Usage Terms

You don’t need sign anything to use a Java affinity mark, as long as you follow our logo Usage Terms. You may not use these marks for any purpose other than communicating your affinity for Java technology, and you may not use these affinity marks on any product. Don’t even think about it. These affinity marks contain Java trademarks, including but not limited to the Java word mark and the Coffee Cup logo, which Duke is very proud of. You may not include these trademarks, or any elements of the Java affinity mark, in any logos or other artwork.

Before you select and download a Java affinity mark, read our Usage Terms to get the lowdown.

  1. Unless you have a separate authorization from Oracle, you may only display the Java affinity mark provided ("affinity mark"), and you may only display it on your Website in compliance with these Usage Terms. By displaying the affinity mark, you agree to be bound by these Usage Terms. Dig?
  2. The affinity mark must always be an active link to and no other Website. You may only display the affinity mark complete and unmodified on your Website, and in no other medium or manner. Seriously.
  3. You may not remove or alter the affinity mark or any element of it, or use any element of the affinity mark separately. You may not alter the affinity mark in any manner. This includes color, proportions, arrangement of the elements, size, etc. You may not animate the affinity mark or otherwise distort or morph its appearance or perspective. Duke really likes these designs and doesn’t want them messed with.
  4. The title of your website and your name (as an individual or organization) must appear on your Website at least as prominently, in terms of size and placement, as a Java affinity mark. You may not display the affinity mark in a manner that implies that Oracle endorses, sponsors, is affiliated with, or is the source of your Website, your products or services, or yourself or your organization. The affinity mark may not be used in a manner that implies that any product is compatible or compliant with any Java platform or has passed any test suite. Capish
  5. The affinity mark must appear by itself, with a minimum clear space at least one half the height of the affinity mark separating each side of the affinity mark from other textual or graphic elements on your Webpage. The affinity mark may not be used as a feature or design element of any other logo. Let Java shine.
  6. You may not display the affinity mark on any Website that violates applicable law or regulations, or any Website that disparages the Java platform, Oracle, or any of our products or services. That would be very uncool.
  7. Oracle does not grant you any rights in any Java logos or trademarks or any other Oracle trademarks beyond the limited permission to display the affinity mark granted in these Usage Terms. Don’t go there.
  8. Oracle reserves the right at any time in our sole discretion to modify or terminate your permission to display the affinity mark. Duke hopes that won’t happen, but wanted to give you a heads-up.
  9. Oracle reserves the right to take action against any use that does not comply with these Usage Terms, infringes Oracle intellectual property or other rights, or violates applicable law or regulations. But you wouldn’t do that, right?
