ETC Swap Trademark Guidelines
ETC Swap is a derivative protocol of Uniswap V2 with minimal changes and thus follows Uniswap Lab's Licensing and Trademark policies. Uniswap Labs distributed the open source Uniswap protocol (versions 1, 2, and 3) and distributes other software. While our code is in part available to download, review, and improve under open-source and source-available software licenses, none of our licenses include a license to use our trademarks. Proper use of our trademarks is essential to inform users whether or not Uniswap Labs stands behind a product or service. When using Uniswap Labs’ trademarks, you must comply with these Uniswap Labs Trademark Guidelines. Just like other projects that develop open source software, we must enforce our trademark rights to protect our users. This policy covers all of our trademarks and services marks, whether they are registered or not, including, among others: 1. The trademarks and service marks: ETC Swap®, ETCswap®, Ethereum Classic DAO™, ETC DAO™, Eth Classic DAO™ (“ETC Swap wordmarks”). 2. ETC Swap logos. If you want to report misuse of a ETC Swap trademark, please contact us at [email protected]
Acceptable Uses
You may do the following without receiving specific permission from Ethereum Classic DAO:
  • Use ETC Swap wordmarks in text to truthfully refer to and/or link to unmodified ETC Swap smart contracts, protocols, interfaces, programs, products, services and technologies (“ETC Swap software”).
  • Use the ETC Swap wordmarks to truthfully describe modified versions of ETC Swap software that you may create or make available. For example, you may say “This software is derived from ETC Swap & Uniswap software.” or “This service uses software derived from ETC Swap & Uniswap software.”
  • Use the ETC Swap logos in software or aggregators that integrate with ETC Swap software to truthfully refer to, and, where possible, link to the applicable ETC Swap software hosted on the Ethereum Classic blockchain.
  • Use ETC Swap wordmarks to clearly signal to users that there is no affiliation with or endorsement by Ethereum Classic DAO.
  • Follow the terms of the open source licenses for Uniswap software and derivatively for ETC Swap licenses.
When allowed, how can I use a Ethereum Classic DAO trademark?
  • You must include a trademark attribution notice at the first or most prominent mention of the mark on a webpage, document or documentation, such as: “[Ethereum Classic DAO trademark] is a trademark of Ethereum Classic DAO.”
  • You may not change the ETC Swap logos except to scale them. If you use the ETC Swap logos, give them adequate spacing from the other elements on the webpage or document to ensure legibility and reduce the likelihood of confusion.
  • You must always use the wordmarks in their exact form and with the correct spelling, neither abbreviated, hyphenated, nor combined with any other word or words.
  • You must always use the ETC Swap wordmarks only as an adjective, never as a noun or verb, or in plural or possessive forms.
  • Instead, use the generic term for the ETC Swap product or service following the trademark.
  • For example: ETC Swap protocol, ETC Swap interface, ETC Swap website.
All other uses of an Ethereum Classic DAO trademark require our prior written permission.

Unacceptable Uses
Some specific things you should not do include:
  • Don’t use our trademarks in anything dishonest or fraudulent.
  • Our name is not your name. Don’t use Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks in the name of your smart contract, interface, business, product, service, app, domain name, publication, or other offering.
  • Don’t use our name for your products. Don’t apply Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks to any product (e.g., a mobile app), unless such use is limited to a truthful and descriptive reference (e.g., “Mobile App for trading on ETC Swap interface”).
  • Don’t overemphasize our mark. Don’t display Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks more prominently than your product, service, or company name.
  • Don’t create or use confusingly similar names. Don’t use Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks, company names, slogans, domain names, or designs that are confusingly similar to Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks, particularly in the name of your smart contract, interface, business, product, service, app, domain name, publication, or other offering.
  • Don’t imply our sponsorship of your products. Don’t use Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks in a way that incorrectly implies affiliation with, sponsorship, endorsement, or approval by Ethereum Classic DAO of your products or services.
  • Don’t imply our sponsorship of your activities. Don’t use Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks, or confusingly similar trademarks on social media accounts in a way that might suggest affiliation with Ethereum Classic DAO or ETC Swap software; except if you’ve received prior permission from Ethereum Classic DAO. For example, you cannot name your account, page, or community “ETC Swap Protocol” or “ETC Swap Team.” However, it would be acceptable to name your account, page, or community “Fans of ETC Swap” or “Information about ETC Swap”.
  • Don’t create swag with our marks. Don’t use Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks on merchandise for sale (e.g., selling t-shirts, mugs, etc.) unless you have permission from Ethereum Classic DAO.
  • Don’t change or combine our marks. Don’t modify Ethereum Classic DAO trademarks, abbreviate them, or combine them with any other symbols, words, or images, or incorporate them into a tagline or slogan.
Others’ Trademarks
A note on others’ trademarks: Ethereum Classic DAO manages one interface (among many) for accessing the ETC Swap protocol, which it does NOT control. Without the involvement of Ethereum Classic DAO, a third-party developer can use the Ethereum Classic protocol to create a token that may implicate others’ trademarks or other rights and add that token to the ETC Swap protocol. Ethereum Classic DAO cannot prevent or block any actions related to the ETC Swap protocol, however, if Ethereum Classic DAO becomes aware of trademark misuse allegations, we will work with trademark owners to review the allegations and may remove content from the Ethereum Classic DAO interface.
