Use of the Word Micronaut®
Use of the word Micronaut is permitted for certain, limited purposes. These purposes include:
- To identify the origin of the software that you are providing, i.e., that the code you are distributing is a modified version of our software or built on our platform/framework. You may say, for example, “this software is built on the Micronaut® framework.”
- To describe the relationship between your software and the Micronaut framework.
- In association with hardware devices, on the condition that the software installed on the device is modified only so far as necessary to operate on the hardware platforms and the essential functions of the software are unchanged, and that you do not suggest that Micronaut software is the source of the hardware device itself, but rather that the Micronaut software is incorporated into the device.
The following rules apply to use of the word Micronaut:
- Do not use the word Micronaut as a verb or a noun. It should be used only as an adjective followed by a noun (e.g., the Micronaut® framework).
- Do not use the word Micronaut in the plural or possessive form.
- The word Micronaut should not be altered or amended in any way. It should not be combined with any other mark, hyphenated, abbreviated, or displayed in parts.
- The word Micronaut may not be used as part of your domain name, product name, or company name, or incorporated into your logo or design.
- The word Micronaut in paragraph text should always be printed with the “M” capitalized and the remainder of the name in lowercase. In headings, the word may be printed in all caps.
- The first use of the word “Micronaut” in running text should always be followed by the registered trademark symbol (®).
When using the word Micronaut, we ask that you prominently disclose the following trademark notice: “Micronaut® is a registered trademark of Object Computing, Inc. Use is for referential purposes and does not imply any endorsement or affiliation with any third-party product. Unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.”
The Micronaut trademarks have been created and their use is expressly permitted for a specific purpose. Do not use the Micronaut logos or the word Micronaut in any commercial or marketing context other than as expressly permitted in this policy unless you have obtained express written permission from Object Computing, Inc.
Nothing in this policy statement may be interpreted to allow any third party to claim any association with the Micronaut framework or Object Computing, Inc. or any of their projects or to imply any approval or support by Object Computing, Inc. for any third-party products or services.
This policy statement is subject to change at any time at the discretion of Object Computing, Inc.
