RI owns the trademarks for the use and benefit of all Rotarians. By complying with the guidelines for the use of the Rotary Marks you are helping to protect the Rotary Marks for all Rotarians into the future. The use of any of the Rotary Marks in any manner not authorised by the Constitution and Bylaws of Rotary International, or by action of the Rotary International Board of Directors, is forbidden and all Rotary districts, clubs, individual Rotarians and other recognised Rotary Entities (as defined in the Rotary Code of Policies) shall conform to this provision. Rotary Entities must refrain from the use of the word “Rotarian” as part of the name or title of any document or publication placed on the Internet. The word “Rotary” may not be used without a qualifier in order to indicate source by any Rotary district, club, other recognised Rotary Entity, or Rotarian. (The word “Rotary” when used without a qualifier indicates that the source is Rotary International or RIBI. Programs, web sites, and other communications not originated from, or directly sponsored by, Rotary International or RIBI must contain a qualifier of the specific “district,” “club,” or other source.) Any reproduction of the Rotary emblem or other of the Rotary Marks must conform to RI/RIBI specifications. The name, emblem, and other Rotary Marks should not be altered, modified, or obstructed in any manner, nor reproduced in other than their complete form.
Any commercial use of the Rotary Marks is limited to and governed by the licensing system of Rotary International and must be officially licensed by Rotary International.
Rotary International strongly encourages all Rotarians to familiarise themselves with official Rotary International guidelines regarding the Rotary Marks as contained herein and in the Rotary International Manual of Procedure. With your help, we can ensure the protection of the Rotary Marks and prevent any unauthorised use. For more information on the proper use of the Rotary Marks, please see the guidelines for the use of the Rotary Marks.
