This policy outlines the expected behaviors and guidelines for community members’ use of the Sui Foundation’s brand assets. These assets include the name Sui, as it refers to the blockchain network, the Sui droplet logo, and any other trademarked assets of the Sui Foundation. We aim to foster a collaborative and respectful environment while safeguarding the integrity of the Sui brand and the well-being of our community members.

We encourage the community to help maintain Sui's reputation by reporting any improper use of the Sui trademark  brand assets, as outlined below, on the security issue reporting form.
