Research In Motion Limited (“RIM”) Trademarks, Logos & Imagery

RIM is the owner of the ubiquitous BlackBerry® family of trademarks.  These trademarks symbolize RIM’s reputation and goodwill and serve to identify and distinguish its products, and services from those of others.  Consumers expect that products, software or services bearing a RIM trademark are manufactured or controlled by RIM and are thus of consistently high quality.  To maintain the distinctiveness of RIM Trademarks, Logos & Imagery as representing RIM’s products, software and services, RIM must take steps to ensure that third parties do not use these assets in such a manner as to confuse consumers into believing there is an affiliation with RIM or endorsement by RIM, when in fact there is none.  Thus, use of RIM Trademarks, Logos & Imagery by third parties is not generally permitted except through express written RIM authorization, or licence from RIM.

The Public Guidelines set out RIM's standards for the permissible use of RIM trademarks.

Use of our RIM Logos is reserved for Partners and standards for permissible use are set out in the Partner Guidelines.
