This page contains frequently asked questions about the Powered by Mozilla program.
The Powered by Mozilla logo is being made available for individuals and organizations that use parts of the Mozilla code-base in their application or product.
Making a Powered by Mozilla logo available will demonstrate how broadly Mozilla's technology is being adopted and will help the community get a better understanding of who the users of Mozilla technology are. Getting a wide range of applications identified with this program can also be the first step in bringing more people into the community as active contributors.
The following criteria have been used to determine which technologies to include in the program:
The following technologies are included in the Powered by Mozilla program:
If an application or product includes a substantial and material portion of one or more of these technologies, it will be eligible to use the Powered by Mozilla logo.
Note: Additional technologies that meet the criteria above may be added to this program in the future.
We decided to start this program with a limited set of technologies and to include additional parts of the Mozilla codebase as the need arises. If there is a technology that that you would like added to the program, please let us know.
To officially request use of the logo, please fill out this form or contact us.
There are unavoidable legal requirements that need to be dealt with when working with a trademark. We need to ensure that use of the mark is licensed and/or used with permission. Any license must also have a quality component, meaning the products which bear a trademark must meet certain standards determined by the trademark owner. The mark should also not be used in connection with products or services that are illegal, offensive, malicious, or harmful as such uses tarnish the Mozilla brand. These terms may seem subjective, but the gist should be clear.
The trademark holder ultimately has the right to determine when and how the marks may be used, solely so that the trademarks maintain their value and function as an identifier of both source and quality—the essence of a trademark. Thus, letting anyone use a trademark, at their own discretion, without precondition, renders the trademark meaningless and is not a viable option. Certainly unauthorized use of trademarks may sometimes occur, but that's a different issue.
In addition, any program we create should not result in a certification mark, like the Underwriters Laboratory UL mark, where anyone who meets a defined set of tests may use the UL mark for any purpose and where the brand owner is actually forbidden from using the UL mark for its own products.
A representative of the Mozilla Foundation will review all applications to make sure that no use of the Powered by Mozilla logo would harm, dilute, or jeopardize the Mozilla brand as a whole or make the Mozilla brand meaningless.
The Mozilla Manifesto sets out a set of values that are central to the Mozilla community's activities. A values-focused program could demonstrate how broadly the principles of the Mozilla Manifesto are being adopted and could bring this message to new groups of people. While promoting the values of the Mozilla Manifesto is a worthwhile effort, we believe that trying to promote both technologies and values with the Powered by Mozilla logo is impossible for the following reasons:
The Powered by Mozilla logo has been created for applications and products that reuse parts of the Mozilla codebase. Extensions that build on top of that code, but that don't embed any of that code, do not fit our current guidelines. We are interested in supporting extension developers if there is a desire to have a logo.
The scope of this program is limited to Powered By Mozilla and is not intended to address issues related to the use of Firefox, Bugzilla or other Mozilla trademarks.
If the Powered by Mozilla logo does not fit your needs, feel free to contact us to discuss alternative options.
