+	    <h2>Introduction</h2>
+            <p>This policy is derived from the
+            <a href="https://www.debian.org/trademark">Debian Trademark Policy</a>,
+            with thanks.</p>
+            <p>OpenSSL is committed to protect and ensure consistent usage
+            of its trademark, logos, and styles and also make it easier for
+            every <em>bonafide</em> user to use. As a part of this process,
+            the OpenSSL trademark is a registered United States trademark
+            of the OpenSSL Software Foundation.  For registration outside the
+            United States, we have filed a <a
+              href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madrid_system">Madrid Protocol</a>
+            application to extend the protection in the European Union,
+            China and Japan.</p>
+            <h2>Trademark Policy</h2>
+            <p>This policy encompasses all marks, in word and logo form,
+            collectively referred to as <q>OpenSSL trademarks.</q></p>
+            <p>The objective of this trademark policy is:</p>
+            <ol>
+              <li>to encourage widespread use and adoption of the OpenSSL
+              trademarks,</li>
+              <li>to clarify proper usage of OpenSSL trademarks by third
+              parties,</li>
+              <li>to prevent misuse of OpenSSL trademarks that can confuse
+              or mislead users
+              with respect to OpenSSL or its affiliates.</li>
+            </ol>
+            <p>Please note that it is not the goal of this policy to limit
+            commercial activity around OpenSSL. We encourage businesses
+            to work on OpenSSL while being compliant with this policy.</p>
+            <p>Following are the guidelines for the proper use of OpenSSL
+            trademarks by publishers and other third parties. Any use of or
+            reference to OpenSSL trademarks that is inconsistent with these
+            guidelines, or other unauthorized use of or reference to OpenSSL
+            trademarks, or use of marks that are confusingly similar to
+            OpenSSL trademarks, is prohibited and may violate OpenSSL
+            trademark rights.</p>
+            <p>Any use of OpenSSL trademarks in a misleading and false manner
+            or in a manner that disparages OpenSSL, such as untruthful
+            advertising, is always prohibited.</p>
+            <h3>When You Can Use the OpenSSL Trademarks Without Asking Permission</h3>
+            <ol>
+              <li>You can use OpenSSL trademarks to make true factual
+              statements about OpenSSL or communicate compatibility with your
+              product truthfully.</li>
+              <li>Your intended use qualifies as <q>nominative fair use</q> of
+              the OpenSSL trademarks, i.e., merely identifying that you are
+              talking about OpenSSL in a text, without suggesting sponsorship
+              or endorsement.</li>
+              <li>You can use OpenSSL trademarks to describe or advertise your
+              services or products relating to OpenSSL in a way that is not
+              misleading.</li>
+              <li>You can use OpenSSL trademarks to describe OpenSSL in
+              articles, titles or blog posts.</li>
+              <li>You can make t-shirts, desktop wallpapers, caps, or other
+              merchandise with OpenSSL trademarks for
+              <em>non-commercial usage</em>.</li>
+              <li>You can also make merchandise with OpenSSL trademarks for
+              <em>commercial usage</em>. In case of commercial usage, we
+              recommend that you truthfully advertise to customers which part
+              of the selling price, if any, will be donated to the OpenSSL
+              project.</li>
+            </ol>
+            <h3>When You Can NEVER Use the OpenSSL Trademarks Without Asking Permission</h3>
+            <ol>
+              <li>You cannot use OpenSSL trademarks in any way that suggests
+              an affiliation with or endorsement by the OpenSSL project or
+              community, if the same is not true.</li>
+              <li>You cannot use OpenSSL trademarks in a company or
+              organization name or as the name of a product or service.</li>
+              <li>You cannot use a name that is confusingly similar to OpenSSL
+              trademarks.</li>
+              <li>You cannot use OpenSSL trademarks in a domain name, with or
+              without commercial intent.</li>
+            </ol>
+            <h3>How to Use the OpenSSL Trademarks</h3>
+            <ol>
+              <li>Use the OpenSSL trademarks in a manner that makes it clear
+              that your project is related to the OpenSSL project, but that it
+              is not part of OpenSSL, produced by the OpenSSL project, or
+              endorsed by the OpenSSL project.</li>
+              <li>Acknowledge OpenSSL Software Foundation's ownership of the
+              OpenSSL trademark prominently.  For example:<br/><br/>
+              <p>[TRADEMARK] is a (<q>registered,</q> if applicable) trademark
+              owned by the OpenSSL Software Foundation.</p></li>
+              <li>Include a disclaimer of sponsorship, affiliation, or
+              endorsement by OpenSSL on your website and on all related
+              printed materials. For example:<br/><br/>
+              <p>X PROJECT is not affiliated with OpenSSL. OpenSSL is a
+              registered trademark owned by OpenSSL Software
+              Foundation.</p></li>
+              <li>Distinguish the OpenSSL trademarks from the surrounding
+              words by italicizing, bolding or underlining it.</li>
+              <li>Use the OpenSSL trademarks in their exact form, neither
+              abbreviated or hyphenated, nor combined with any other word or
+              words.</li>
+              <li>Do not create acronyms using the OpenSSL trademarks.</li>
+            </ol>
+            <h3>Permission To Use</h3>
+            <p>When in doubt about the use of OpenSSL trademarks, or to
+            request permission for uses not allowed by this policy, please
+            send an email to
+            <a href="mailto:contact at openssl.org">contact at openssl.org</a>.

+              <li>Purpose of Use (commercial/non-commercial)</li>
+              <li>Nature of Use</li>
+            </ul>
+            <h3>Guidelines for Using Logos</h3>
+            <ul>
+              <li>Any scaling must retain the original proportions of the
+              logo.</li>
+              <li>Do not use the OpenSSL logos as part of your company logo or
+              product logo or branding itself. They can be used as part of a
+              page describing your products or services.</li>
+              <li>You need not ask us for permission to use logos on your own
+              website solely as a hyperlink to the OpenSSL project
+              website.</li>
+            </ul>
+            <p>
