Replace logo in UI

Hi,
I am building grafana from source and I understand the copyright retention but am unsure about logos in the UI. Just wanted to make sure if its ok to replace the grafana logos.Thanks.

It depends on what you are doing with Grafana but in most cases it is fine.

An example of when it might be a legal issue: if you are selling a product which contains Grafana with changed logos and still contains the Grafana name then you might be breaching the copyright.

The Grafana Word Mark is used in a manner consistent with this Trademark Policy and usage guidelines below;

  • There is no commercial activity associated with the use of the Grafana Word Mark, including the requirement of third-party commercial software or services;
  • The Grafana Word Mark is used only to refer to the Grafana project and/or technology
  • The Grafana Word Mark is not used in an attention-getting or branding manner, or used as part of your product or service name;
  • The Grafana Word Mark appears less prominent than your company or product name.
  • The reference to Grafana does not create a sense of endorsement, sponsorship, or false association with Coding Instinct, the Grafana project, or the Grafana community.

Thanks, appreciate the quick response

I have a related question - how can I remove the Grafana word that is displayed in the browser tab, if that is permissible. Thanks.

Sure - if it is your own fork you can do what you want with the code (Grafana uses the Apache license).

You will have to rebuild Grafana from source to see these changes. Otherwise you can just do a search and replace in the Grafana javascript.

hi daniellee, what grafana team would think of a PR to make these things configurable without rebuilding the code?

cheers,

The sun-spiral-looking icon in the upper-left corner is located at /usr/share/grafana/public/img/grafana_icon.svg

Easy solution is to convert your company logo to an SVG file and save it at that location, or, alternatively, mount the image as a volume in Docker /my/custom/image/logo/location/grafana_icon.svg:/usr/share/grafana/public/img/grafana_icon.svg:rw
