The FAQ says: http://www.sun.com/software/opensource/java/faq.jsp#k17
If I test my OpenJDK-based implementation under the new
compatibility testing program and license, and I pass the TCK,
can I call my implementation "Java Compatible"?
Yes. But you'll first need to accept a trademark license before
you can use this Sun brand and trademark subject to the terms of
the trademark license. The trademark license will be free of
charge for use on implementations that qualify for testing under
the OpenJDK Community TCK License. Since as of late April, 2008,
it is not yet possible to build a compatible implementation
based on the OpenJDK 6 code base, this trademark license is not
yet available. We expect to make draft copies available to the
community soon, with the final.
The entry is a bit out of date since it has been half a year now since
there have been OpenJDK/IcedTea derived packages (at least on Fedora
x86/x86_64) that pass the TCK and are technically Java Compatible. But
as far as I know draft copies of this trademark license have never been
published. Has it made final yet?
