I have published a FOSS project on Github and am interested in retaining the trademarks to the project name and graphic elements.
From the Apache 2.0 license:
- Trademarks. This License does not grant permission to use the trade names, trademarks, service marks, or product names of the Licensor, except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the origin of the Work and reproducing the content of the NOTICE file.
Is there a standard way to declare trademarks, copyrights etc. in code repositories? For example, do project owners typically have a "COPYRIGHT.md" file? Or is there typically a "Trademarks" section of the "README.md"? (I've never seen this before.) Are there any templates/good examples/best practices for how to do this?
