I’ve asked the person in the company who I believe has the say in this; I’ll get back with a confirmation if I get it Let us know if you also need some short testimonial quotes or something. Oh and I’m also writing that longer-form blogpost.
I’ve got a logo for Humio that you can put up, but it’s an SVG, so I can’t upload it to Discourse. I’ve got this link instead: https://we.tl/t-3HO3mv8bI6
Note that it expires in a week We also don’t have anything in the way of testimonials or blog posts at the moment, but I’m trying to cook something up. We’ll see when it happens though.
I’m guessing it’s a matter of company policy. At Humio, my team quickly agreed that we should just do it, and there’s no point in trying to push it upwards, because we can make that decision as well as anyone above as can.
I am not a lawyer, so please treat what follows with the skepticism it deserves!
I work for a company whose business is to write customer testimonials and case studies for big technology companies, so I can tell you the common practice that I’ve observed re: use of logos.
Typically, the organisation that wants to use the logo will seek explicit permission from the organisation that owns the logo. This permission is usually just an email from someone working for the logo-owner who has the authority to make the decision - for example, if it’s a large company, then the head of corporate communications might be the right person; for a smaller company, perhaps one of the directors or senior management team.
In some cases, the organisation that wants to use the logo will get their lawyers to draft a permission form that they’ll ask the logo-owner to sign. In other cases, I’ve seen it the other way around, where the logo-owner has a form that they ask the logo-user to sign (usually specifying that the logo can only be used in certain contexts, or for a certain period of time).
In short, I haven’t come across a common standard; it seems to me that as @KasMA1990 says, each company has its own policies on how strictly they will police the usage of their logo. This can range from a simple “yes of course” to a byzantine maze of bureaucracy that takes months to navigate.
For what it’s worth, if I were collecting logos, I would make sure that I had written permission from the logo-owner (even if it’s just a clearly worded email) and I’d keep a record of all the permissions that I had obtained. That way, I’d have some solid documentation if anyone later questions my use of the logo.
I’m a bit confused here. Are we actually speaking about adding logos to https://elm-lang.org/ ? On what page? (I currently don’t see any logo) @terezka do you have write access to this website? Where is this google search? What is the answer to the ultimate Question of Life , the Universe , and Everything?
The first hit prints " elm The 1st argument to drop is not what I expect: 8| List.drop (String.toInt userInput) [1,2,3,4,5,6] ^^^^^^^^^ …"
Which is an example on the main page, but it kind of looks like the site is reporting some error. The summary text should probably be saying “Elm is a delightful language
for reliable webapps with no runtime exceptions…” or whatever.
