Permission to Use Moonbeam®

In order to use the name Moonbeam® legally, you must request permission from Moonbeam® Development, LLC.

Email, or visit

Moonbeam® can also decline to give permission for the use of its name.

You may only use Moonbeam® marks to identify Moonbeam® and Moonbeam® products and services in a way that is accurate, not misleading, and not disparaging of Moonbeam®, its products or services, personnel, communities, or users. You may not modify our marks (which would include logos, taglines and slogans), or combine them with other marks, or use them as a part of a larger mark, or adopt or use any mark, that is confusingly similar to, misleading, or applies any affiliation with or endorsement by Moonbeam®. You may not use the Moonbeam® corporate logo without express written permission from Moonbeam®.

Here are some examples as to how our marks can and cannot be used:

  • You must use the full mark and not truncate, abbreviate, create acronyms, or otherwise shorten the mark

  • Do not create products or merchandise featuring Moonbeam® marks

  • Ensure there is adequate white space separating Moonbeam® product logos from other content

  • Use the most current versions of Moonbeam® product logos

  • Do not use the same styles or design elements from Moonbeam® logos in your own logos

  • Do not modify the color, background, rotation, angle, aspect ratio, or other attribute of any logo

  • Do not reduce below a size where the logo is readily identifiable

  • When using Moonbeam® marks, use an appropriate attribution and proprietary rights notice, such as: [Mark] and the [Logo name] are trademarks of Moonbeam®.

    Nominative Fair Uses

    In order to accurately identify Moonbeam® products and services, it may be necessary to call them by name. When that name is a Moonbeam® trademark, this practice is known as a "nominative fair use" of that trademark. The basic rules for nominative fair uses include that you must be accurate and not misleading, that such fair use generally extends only to use word marks, and that you should not use the marks more prominently or frequently than necessary. We do not consider uses that fail to comply with the rest of this policy to be permissible fair uses of our trademarks.

    Uses that are not allowed

    The following uses of Moonbeam® trademarks violate our policy, and are probably infringing:

  • Branding products and/or services in a manner that is confusingly similar to Moonbeam® branding

  • Providing software or service offerings consisting of official Moonbeam-distributed software or services under alternative names

  • Using company names that may be associated in customers' minds with Moonbeam or its trademarked project software

  • Claiming Moonbeam® approval or endorsement of products and/or services

    Using Moonbeam® Trademarks in domain names

    You may not use Moonbeam trademarks in your own domain names. Please realize that the use of our trademarks in your domain names is generally not considered "nominative fair use" because the domain name refers to the offerings on your website, rather than merely being used to identify our products and services.


    Our intent with this policy is to ensure Moonbeam® marks are not misused, and to maintain a clear distinction in the market between Moonbeam® and its products and services, and the products and services of others. Nothing in this policy shall be deemed or interpreted to grant any license, or to allow any third party to claim any association with or endorsement by Moonbeam®, or to indicate or imply any approval or support by Moonbeam® for any third party products or services, whether or not derived from Moonbeam® products or services. We reserve the right to amend this Trademark Policy, including any permissions within it, at any time.
