Open Usage Commons

In July 2020, Google announced it would be moving the Gerrit trademark to the Open Usage Commons. The Open Usage Commons focuses on helping open source projects navigate trademarks, and finding ways to apply the Open Source Definition to how open source project trademarks are handled. The Open Usage Commons Board will be working on developing open source project trademark usage guidelines, and managing the trademarks of Angular, Istio, and Gerrit.

If you are currently using the Gerrit trademark, you can continue to do so, following any applicable, existing usage guidelines. In the future, users will see usage guidelines that give them explicit permission to use the Gerrit mark, and if you see a trademark issue, you will want to contact the Open Usage Commons.
