Joomla in the extensions name?
We at the Joomla Extensions Directory have a direct interest in maintaining the integrity of the Joomla brand. As such, we cannot allow violations of the Joomla trademark, logo, brand, etc., to be placed in or linked from the Joomla Extensions Directory.
- An extension name can't start with the word "Joomla".
- Extensions that use "Joomla" or a derivative of Joomla in the extension name or the domain name need to be licensed by OSM.
You can find more information about our policy: http://community.joomla.org/blogs/community/632-protecting-the-joomla-trademark-in-jed.html
To be licensed you need then to fill one of the following forms to OSM:
