The EPS logo (Python two snakes logo with 12 stars around it) includes the Python two snakes logo, which is a trademark of the Python Software Foundation, USA. The PSF has granted the EPS permission to use the two snakes logo as part of the EPS logo.

In order to maintain the protection of the trademarks, we are required by trademark law to enforce our trademark rights and set up clear rules on what are permitted uses, which uses require explicit permissions and which uses are not permitted.

This page lists our trademark usage guidelines.

Usage Guidelines for the “EuroPython” word mark

  • Nominative Use. The “EuroPython” trademark may be used when referencing the EuroPython conference series or a single conference of this series, without getting permission from the EPS. Other uses require the written prior permission from the EPS.
  • Abbreviations. In general please try to use the full name of the word mark. If needed, the following abbreviations of the “EuroPython” trademark are permitted: “EP” when referring to the EuroPython conference, “EP xxxx” (with xxxx replaced with the conference year, e.g. 2014) when referring to a specific EuroPython conference, “EPC” when referring to the EuroPython conference, “EPC xxxx” (with xxxx replaced with the conference year, e.g. 2014) when referring to a specific EuroPython conference. Please note that these abbreviations are often used as abbreviations for third-party trademarks. As a result, special care has to be taken, when using them. Other forms of abbreviations are not permitted.
  • Styling. The word mark “EuroPython” consists of the two works “Euro” and “Python”. Any typographical styling applied to the word mark has to make this distinction clear by using different fonts for the two parts, different colors, sizes or casing. It is not permitted to use variants that do not make the distinction visually clear.
  • Derivatives. You may not combine the “EuroPython” trademark (in any casing) with other words to form new trademarks, without getting prior written approval from the EPS.
  • Domains. You may not register domains that include the word “EuroPython” (in any casing) without getting prior written approval from the EPS.
  • Account Names. You may not register social media accounts that include the word “EuroPython” (in any casing) without getting prior written approval from the EPS.

Usage Guidelines for the EPS logo

  • Nominative Use. The EPS logo may be used when referencing the EuroPython Society or the EuroPython conference series. Other uses are not permitted.
  • Derivatives. The EPS logo may not be used as basis for other logos or integrated into other logos without getting prior written approval from the EPS.
  • Color Changes. Only the variants posted on the logos page may be used.
  • Context. When using the EPS logo together with other logos, a safety margin has to be used around the logo to clearly separate the logo from the other logos. The logo may not be used in contexts which would harm the good standing of the logo, the EuroPython conference series, or the EPS.
