Trinity College Dublin has a policy of protecting its intellectual property rights against unauthorised commercial exploitation. The College now wishes to examine the commercial potential of its trademarks by providing alumni, students, staff and visitors to the College with high-quality branded goods which will enhance the College’s identity through the use of its name, trademarks, word marks and images.
A Policy covering the use of College Trademarks was approved by the Board of Trinity College Dublin on 9th July 2003. This policy specifies that approval from the Secretary’s Office must be obtained for use of any of its trademarks and word marks. This applies to the College community as well as commercial companies wishing to use the trademarks. All manufacturers and suppliers of goods for sale bearing any of the trademarks of Trinity College Dublin must be licensed by the College’s Licensing Programme.
