Can I use the Wireshark Logo to represent Wireshark

asked 2022-03-07 17:01:16 +0000

We are writing code to orchestrate cloud resources so people can use/develop Wireshark (and many other tools) on the cloud. Our business model is PaaS, so we must charge for the cloud resources, but we won't charge for Wireshark.

Can we use the name and logo so people know they are getting access to "the" WireShark? At the moment, the prototype just has a text button (among buttons to launch other platforms) that says, launch "New Wireshark Platform", but we'd like to make the buttons look better with a logo, etc. The bottom of the website says, "Wireshark and the "fin" logo are registered trademarks." which makes sense, but with the open license and because we would be using the logo to relate to the official Wireshark software, would this be fine? I couldn't find anything about the logo or trademarks in the official license (GNU GPL 2). If we need specific approval, who do we talk to?
