Topic: MSX Revival

In our previous news post on the MSX Association website update, there were some nuances in the translation we were not able to translate. Bernard Lamers translated the full text on the website for us. Here it is:The conditions for use of the MSX logoThe MSX Association holds the trademark 'MSX'. In order to allow all MSX users to employ this trademark in a wide range of situations, we have established conditions regarding the use of the 'MSX' and 'MSXPLAYer' logo's. We plan to announce the other logo's specified by the MSX standard (MSX2, MSX2+, MSX Turbo R, MSX-MUSIC, megarom etc.) as soon as our preparations are finished.Homepages which have MSX as their theme.

  • For homepages which take MSX as their theme, you may use the logo's freely regardless of the contents of the page. However, we do not acknowledge this right for homepages carrying material for which illegality such as the infringement of copyrights has been confirmed.
  • The logo image file is posted at the bottom of this page. Please download and use it freely. You are allowed to make changes to the size, but please do not change the horizontal to vertical ratio.
  • Please put a line indicating that the MSX Association is the holder of the MSX trademark on an easy to spot place on the homepage. For example 'MSX' is a trademark of the MSX Association.
  • Please put a link to the MSX Association's homepage ( In principal you do not have to inform us, but to avoid links from homepages carrying illegal material, we would appreciate a mail regarding the link. Mail address:
  • People who want to add color to the logo, inverse the colors of the logo, or perform similar graphical operations, please contact us.

Amateur productions such as software based on the MSX standard and magazines.

  • Treatment is the same as for homepages. Please put the logo and the trademark notice on an easy to spot place on either the package of the software product or the cover of the magazine.
  • We would appreciate if you would contact us for confirmation before distributing your product.

As you can see, this clears up some of the questions that raised in our reactions. Thanks go to Bernard Lamers for translating the texts!
