Midjourney Trademark Policy
Last Updated: August 7, 2023
The goal of this policy is to protect customers by making it easy to readily identify products and services from Midjourney, Inc. Please read on to learn when and how you can properly use our logo, name, and other brand features (collectively, the “Midjourney Trademarks”).
What are the Midjourney Trademarks?
The Midjourney Trademarks include, but are not limited to, the following:
By using any Midjourney Trademarks, or by accessing the Midjourney platform, you acknowledge that Midjourney is the sole owner of the Trademarks and you agree not to interfere with Midjourney’s rights in the Trademarks, including challenging Midjourney’s use, registration of, or application to register such Trademarks. You agree that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into dispute any Midjourney Trademarks. You may not use any Midjourney Trademarks in metatags, search fields, hidden text without Midjourney’s prior written consent. It is never acceptable to use the Midjourney Trademarks in any form that has the purpose or effect of diverting or confusing consumers.
Please review these guidelines on a regular basis, as they may be updated from time to time. Midjourney reserves the right to revoke any permission and to change or restrict any use of the trademarks if we believe that such use is in violation of this policy or is harmful to the reputation of Midjourney or the Midjourney community.

Can I use one of the Midjourney Trademarks when registering a domain name?
You may not use the Midjourney Trademarks in your own domain, if that use would likely confuse a relevant consumer. You may not use the Midjourney Trademarks in your product, app, or service, except to clearly refer to Midjourney services in a nominative fashion.
Can I use one of the Midjourney Trademarks when naming an application or game?
You may not use the Midjourney trademark in naming an application or a game, if that use would likely confuse a consumer.
What if I want to plan an online or in person event concerning Midjourney or with Midjourney community members?
To help guide your usage of our trademarks, please keep in mind the following: Meetups, events, online chats outside our Discord channel, or other in person or online events that are not sponsored or endorsed by Midjourney cannot misrepresent the event as such. In order to avoid this confusion, the event planner should promote the event as an unofficial event.
Midjourney is not responsible for your experience at these unofficial events, as it is not an official Midjourney event. In order to avoid any implication that Midjourney is associated or sponsoring the event, avoid prominent use the Midjourney Trademarks (e.g., in connection with the title of the event etc.) to advertise, promote, or otherwise talk about the event.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Nothing in this Midjourney policy statement shall be interpreted to allow any third parties to claim any association with the Midjourney offerings or to imply its approval or support by Midjourney for any third-party products or services.
