TRADEMARK AND CREST POLICY AND PROCEDURE
The corporate name of Omega Delta National Fraternity, Inc., the name “Omega Delta,” the nicknames “O D(s)” and “OH DEEZ,” and the Omega Delta National Fraternity crest (e.g. the Coat of Arms, Crest, Chapter Seal, Flag, the Greek and/or Roman Letters of Omega Delta, etc.) identify the organization and each of its Chapters to its members, to prospective members , and to the public at large. The Omega Delta name and crest are valuable assets of Omega Delta which must always be used properly, as improper usage can diminish their value or can subject them to challenge by other organizations or companies. Therefore, when using the Omega Delta name and/or crest on stationery and forms, in advertising, on the Internet, and on any other documents or on products which are distributed to members, prospective members or the general public, Chapters should follow the trademark usage guidelines outlined herein. By following these guidelines, Chapters will help achieve Omega Delta’s goal of strengthening the Omega Delta name and crest and increasing Omega Delta’s name recognition, both in the Greek and Campus Community and among the public at large, which will in turn benefit each and every Omega Delta Chapter.
Only the National Executive Council, acting on behalf of the Fraternity, may authorize commercial reproduction of the Fraternity’s name(s) (i.e. “Omega Delta,” “Omega Delta Fraternity,” etc.), and crest (i.e. any design or representation of the Coat of Arms, Chapter Seal, Flag, the Greek and/or Roman Letters of Omega Delta, etc.). Anyone wishing to acquire merchandise bearing any name or crest of the Fraternity shall obtain those items only from vendors which are currently authorized to produce or market official Omega Delta merchandise (these vendors can be found on the Omega Delta website). Any company wishing to produce, sell and/or market products or services that utilize the name or crest of the Fraternity shall first be authorized by the Omega Delta National Executive Council, or its designee. Active Chapters may create their own material or utilize the crest for their own personal needs from time to time, but such rights are not extended to grant commercial use of the name or crest to any third party. A chapter’s personal use must be in the spirit of Omega Delta’s purpose and principles and shall not devalue the Fraternity’s name or crest. Please note that Chapters who create material deemed to be “inappropriate” by the Omega Delta National Executive Council will be subject to disciplinary action.
Third party companies (vendors) are required to become licensed and provide a copy or proof of the text and/or design to the National Executive Council (or its designee) prior to production of the product or other commercial use. What is “Inappropriate?” he National Executive Council shall not approve any text or design which casts the Fraternity in a negative light or is otherwise contrary to the purpose and principles of the Fraternity, specifically including, but not limited to, any content deemed to glorify alcohol or illegal substance use, or any content considered to be sexist or demeaning to women or other persons. In addition, all Members should review their website and/or social media content that casts the Fraternity in a negative light or is otherwise contrary to the purpose and principles of the Fraternity. Anyone who creates material deemed to be “inappropriate” by the Omega Delta National Executive Council will be subject to disciplinary action.
