All Public Art supports and encourages ideas, services, and tools that use and supplement All Public Art’s services. At the same time, we are serious about protecting our reputation, our trademarks and our brand identity. This Trademark Policy explains how to refer to All Public Art, our marks or our services.
A trademark is a word, name, symbol or device (or a combination of those items) that identifies the goods or services of a person or company and distinguishes them from the goods and services of others. The word “All Public Art” and other All Public Art graphics, logos, designs, page headers, button icons, scripts, and service names (together, the “All Public Art Marks”) are registered trademarks, trademarks or trade dress of All Public Art, Inc., in the U.S. and/or other countries.
Why must All Public Art protect the All Public Art Marks? All Public Art must be to able assure Internet users and others that only the services offered, sponsored, or endorsed by All Public Art actually bear the All Public Art Marks. Trademark law requires that we not only protect against improper use of the All Public Art Marks, but also protect against the use of confusingly similar marks.
