Rules for using the Eastercon trademarkEdit

As it says on the above website

Does a convention or a bid need written permission?Edit

In practice, getting permission tends to be a verbal conversation on the lines of: "May we?" "Yes". There's no official contract, and very few terms and conditions.

What are the terms and conditions?Edit

One of the convention's publications must state that:

"Eastercon is a registered trade mark and is used with permission"

Whoever's in charge of publications gets to pick which one. That's it, as far as the trademark holder is concerned.

Do people writing about Eastercons, or thinking of running one, have to get permission to use the trademark?Edit

No. That would be very officious and bureaucratic.
