You can do many things with the Grouper logos without the explicit permission of Internet2. However, there are also things you may not do without obtaining written permission. The Grouper trademark must always be used in ways that are non-confusing, non-diluting, and non-disparaging. Non-confusing means that use should not imply inaccurate affiliation with or endorsement by Internet2 or the Grouper team. Non-diluting means that use may not contribute to the mark becoming a generic term. Non-disparaging means that Grouper trademarks may not be used to defame or derogate
