The Open Source Definition spells out the essential
qualities of open source software. Unfortunately, the term "open source"
itself is subject to misuse, and because it's descriptive, it can't be
protected as a trademark (which would have been our first choice). Since
the community needs a reliable way of knowing whether a piece of software
really is open source, OSI is registering a certification mark, OSI Certified, for this
purpose. OSI has also created a graphic certification mark,
, that can be used instead of
the text certification mark. If you see either of these marks on a piece of
software, the software is being distributed under a license
that conforms to the Open Source Definition. Use of these marks for software
that is not distributed under an OSI approved license is an infringement of
OSI's certification marks and is against the law.

- If you want to use the OSI Certified mark on your
