Our trademarks include not just our logo, but the name of our company and the names of certain products, services, and technologies. Using our trademarks correctly in documentation, web pages, marketing materials and collateral, is just as important as using the logo correctly.

RED HAT IN WRITING

Red Hat is always two words and is capitalized when written out in text. Always use the same typeface you are using for the rest of the text. Always spell out our name in English—never translated into another language.

REGISTERED TRADEMARKS (®)

Use a registered trademark symbol (®) after the trademarked terms in the first reference in body copy (not in headlines or titles). Subsequent references in the same work do not need the trademark symbol.

We currently mark only a subset of our registered trademarks with the trademark symbol, including:

  • Red Hat®
  • JBoss®
  • Hibernate®
  • RHCE®
  • RHCSA®
  • Shadowman artwork

The only communications that do not include trademark symbols at all are press releases and press blogs.

Do not use the trademark symbol to mark other companies’ trademarks unless Red Hat has an agreement with them that obligates us to do so, or you are instructed to do so by Red Hat’s legal department. Linux® and OpenStack® are examples of trademarks that must be marked with the trademark symbol due to Red Hat’s relationship with their respective owners.
