WordPress Plugin Naming Convention & Trademark Question

davewarfel's picture

I'm considering building a WordPress plugin that provides design options in the Customizer for H5P content types. I'm in the exploration phase right now, but should I move ahead with it, I want to make sure I don't infringe on the H5P trademark, particularly with the naming of the plugin.

I'm thinking of creating a free plugin that will be hosted on wordpress.org, as well as a premium upgrade that contains even more features.

Would I be allowed to use "H5P" anywhere in the name? Nowhere at all? Yes, but not at the beginning? Only for the free plugin but not the premium one?

I just want to make sure I do this ethically & properly from the beginning. Any guidance or further insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Dave!

Should be described at https://h5p.org/trademark

Hi Oliver. Thanks for your response.

I actually did read through that page, and at the time I posted this, I was still unsure. But I just re-read it and I'm 95% sure that I need to contact Joubel to obtain a license, so that's what I'll do.

Happy New Year!
