Using the term "H5P"

While is still in beta state, I wanted to draw attentions to a "legal" issue related with the name H5P.

I assume that H5P is a registered "trademark" whose right of use belongs to Joubel or some other contributing party. I say "assume" because nowhere on this website have I come across a statement that confirms this. If such a statement exists, it should be made more visible to prevent misuse.

Moodle, for example, has a trademark policy (as explained here) which ensures that the word "moodle" cannot be used in a domain name without permission. Similarly, H5P management should make sure that, for instance, I cannot go and start a website like and provide a SaaS system even before is fully functional.

Hi Hakan!

Thanks for the hint. We had an open ticket for this issue anyway, and we changed the footer of the website to address that issue.

Hello again,

I can see that the footnote has been adjusted to point to the issue of trademark. I followed the link and read the documentation thoroughly. I can see that there are a few writing mistakes that need to be corrected in this trademark documentation. I am sending the list of corrections I suggest as an attachment to [email protected]
