Using the OpenGL Logo
Does your your hardware or software products supports OpenGL, or do you host a site with OpenGL news, OpenGL game info or OpenGL programming examples? If so, then we encourage you to host the OpenGL logo on your web site to let visitors know that you support the industry standard for high performance graphics.
In order to make sure that the OpenGL logo is not used inappropriately (e.g. on a site with no OpenGL content), and because OpenGL is a trademark of SGI, we ask that you complete this form so we have a record of where the logo is being used. This will also alert us to your site as a source for possible OpenGL Headline News.
