Logo Usage

Post by DudleyGrunt » Mon Jan 11, 2016 10:59 am

I received the following from Webling (Rich Wendling), an OCNA member and one of my TerraCaching sponsors.
I am in the beginning stages of writing a book about geocaching, and would like to include information about the OpenCaching websites. What are the policies regarding usage of logos, trademarks, screenshots, and so forth?
I take it that I can let him know he can freely use our logo and other images?

Given that I assume he plans to sell his book and not give it away for free, I assume the Europeans / Germans might not allow usage, but I'll at least try to reach out to them.

Absolutely! I even made up a creative commons license for the logo! It's shown on the wiki under downloads. Euro sites? Who knows. :D

Ya' could have picked a clearer day! Geez, I wonder where Webling's book is. I have no recollection of this thread.

Removed the duplicate post

Well it was a last minute trip to get the mother inlaw out of the house.
We had detoured onto the Blueridge parkway near Blowing Rock and went for a ride.
Surprise, I know this place. Totally unplanned and unanticipated. I have some better pics on the camera, those were from my phone.
Weather was nice but there were passing showers in this area and a storm brewing in the distance contributing to the haze.

As for whats his face, I found this

No Geocaching book was listed in his "published" list
