Contact Red Hat and ask for permissions to promote THEIR services/certs since you are already payed them thousands to get your own certifications :-).
Besides that you would use your own "notes/experience, I don't see why they would reject that, it is basically like you blog about an experience with something".
But I see your concern with the rhce name...well in my opinion this is to "generic"<thing to argue :-).
Yes I agree. You should contact them for permission. In general you shouldn't face much problem if you don't monetise the site. Its pretty much like a review site. But it will be better to ask them first...
I don't find it confusing. I don't think it's bad faith.. and to me it's nominative use. How else would you describe this? Beyond "A Company I won't mention's Certification Exam".
Everytime you mention RHCE put the R symbol next to it with a link in your footer explaining that it's a registered trademark of Red Hat.
I find it highly unlikely anyone would care, frankly.
There terms seem to indicate that if you are RHCE you can use their marks without too many problems if you do so in such a manner that is positive for them: https://www.redhat.com/training/poli...hce_terms.html.
I'm not like the guy on TMZ- I'm not a lawyer and I didn't really read the terms that much. It's up to YOU to do that. I'm sure you could contact them prior to doing anything if you really want to use this domain...
Thanks all for the details.
So I will check with redhat and then proceed.
Also, earlier I planed to provide e-book to the readers as a collection of the online articles for easy reference for a nominal charge. will this be considered as monetizing where in all contents is already available I will just be creating an index and collating it in an e-book for say 10$ or so...
Hey there, just stop asking hypothetical questions since we already gave you the starting point...ask REDHAT like you answered you will do...and go from there...:-).
Thanks everyone for the response and help and suggestions..
I finally selected a safe way and booked a separate domain.
As my e-book selling plans might come in direct contradiction of their Learning Centers work so started safe...
