Google Says: You can’t use Chrome Stuff!

by Chrome Blog on September 24, 2008

Back on the 9th September i received an Email from Terri Chen who’s title is “Senior Trademark Counsel” for Google.com regarding a snapshot of the Google Chrome comic, the Google Chrome icon and the Google Chrome logo being displayed on this site and i was told i could not display them.

Considering Google Chrome is an ‘Open Source’ project, and ChromePlugins.org is only serving to promote Google Chrome and is in no way monetizing from Chrome (It’s actually cost me nearly $1k for server, licenses, domain etc) i asked for clarification on what was allowed and not allowed.

To summarize, if you have never visited this site previously this was the issue:

and on the forum..

Terri Chen of Google replied today and the answer is None!

There’s thousands of websites out there displaying the Google Chrome “Sphere” and the Google Chrome Comic in both it’s original form as well as “Bastardized” versions of it and profiting off the content via Google Adsense.

Websites cannot display the Google Chrome Icon, the Google Chrome Comic or the Google Chrome Favicon. Seems pretty absurd to me having an Open Source project, and thousands of people wanting to promote and development for the platform to make it more functional and in turn gain a higher market share then tell them you cannot display any of the graphical elements on your site. It’s a bit like having a Jennifer Lopez fan site, and not being able to show pictures of Jenifer Lopez.

What is interesting is Wikipedia is displaying the logo on This Page that says it qualifies as fair use. Also i asked Terri Chen about the comic, telling her i have linked to Scott McCloud the creator as attribution for his work on every page the comic screenshot was displayed on from day one. I asked if this comic was released under Creative Commons, and the reply was:

“I believe that the link to the Creative Commons license may not have been showing on the online version of the comic book. This has now been corrected, and here is the link: http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/small_00.html. I’ve checked with the team, and they do not want to allow uses of the comic book per the license at this time.”

After checking the main comic page, Google has just added a link. This part i do not understand, it was released under the Creative Commons but they don’t want to let people use it under Creative Commons at this time. Does anyone understand that statement?

I’m no law expert by any means I’m simply a person who took an interest in the Google Chrome Browser and wanted to develop for it, blog about it, promote it and share information that may help people.

So if you want to help Google develop Chrome and come up with new functionality to assist them gain market share in the browser space, i suggest you use the following logo and remove the ThinkFree Office text so you don’t impose on “Google’s” mark.

Go Figure.

Chrome is my #2 browser now. Firefox for work and Chrome for Home. I really like the browser. Especially the huge display and cool features.

There are hundreds of sites displaying the Google Chrome logo, I can’t see where the issue lies unless you are not making profits from the use of their work.

It makes sense that this is Google’s policy. Chrome is designed to become the window to cloud based computing. It is therefore important that users are not confused which browser they are using. The Chrome logo is displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the Chrome home-screen. This is good branding from Google.

Chrome plugins to me do not seem quite up to par with firefox. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like the apple app market compared to the droid market. Same comparison in my mind.

Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
