The Institute’s name must not be used in ways that suggest or imply the endorsement of other organizations, their products, or their services. The use of the Institute’s name, logo, seal, and photographs in the advertising and other promotional material and activities of outside organizations is prohibited when such use is likely to be understood as an endorsement, even if such an endorsement is not the intention of the person or organization seeking to use MIT’s name. All faculty and staff members should assume responsibility for preventing misuse of the Institute’s name. Misuse may arise from consulting activities, in public reports made by individuals, or through failure to record and clarify MIT’s restrictions governing the use of results obtained during research or investigations on behalf of commercial firms.
