Trademark sublicense request: Jenkins Master Class

Parker Ennis

Hi All,


On behalf of CloudBees, I’d like to request permission to use the following name with ‘Jenkins’ in it:
  • Jenkins Master Class

"Jenkins Master Class" will be a series of educational webinars hosted by CloudBees that invites experts from both the Jenkins community and CloudBees to team up and share their knowledge with others. The intent is to host 10+ webinars, or "courses," with a duration of about an hour each released on a monthly cadence. They will be recorded for future use. Here's a loose example of the concept from which we're drawing inspiration.

I will add this as an agenda item to the October 23rd project meeting to get a final decision there. If you have any concerns, objections or would like additional info on what we're doing, please chime in on this thread prior to the meeting so that we can address them. Thanks a lot!


Best,

The "test" we have typically applied to such requests in the past was whether
the use of the mark was pecific to Jenkins, as opposed to including other
non-Jenkins applications/products.

For example, I have no problem with this so long as the content of the "master
class" are specifically around Jenkins as it is understood by the open source
community, i.e. open source plugins and core, etc.

If this "master class" were to contain Jenkins-based commercial products, such
as CLoudBees Core, then I would have an objection to the use of the Jenkins
trademark for the effort.


Knowledge sharing is certainly a noble goal, but for the use of the Jenkins
mark, the scope should be necessarily limited.

Re: Trademark sublicense request: Jenkins Master Class

Parker Ennis
Thanks for the feedback, Tyler. Completely reasonable concerns.

We want to keep the focus on Jenkins as you mentioned and won't have content around CloudBees Core, for example. However, we will want to utilize the series to attract people to the support offering and use the content as a value add to support. CloudBees Jenkins Distribution, since it's free to all and only includes a few proprietary plugins, would be the other piece I'd hope that would be ok to include. At the end of the day, the intent is for this to be Jenkins specific. Thoughts?

Best,
