Websites that offer lessons
The Skype name may be used only to communicate that lessons can be provided using the Skype app. No other uses are allowed unless permitted under these guidelines.
You may mention "Skype" in copy, but be sure to follow Permitted uses of Skype Brand Assets elsewhere in this section. Use of the name cannot imply affiliation, association, sponsorship, endorsement, certification, or approval with or by Skype or Microsoft. Microsoft may withdraw the right to use the Skype name where, in its sole discretion, it deems that such use may have a detrimental effect on the Skype brand.
School reports and projects
You may use images of Skype products in reports for school or college/university. If the images contain third-party content (e.g. third-party logos, photos, etc.) then you may need additional permission from the third party to use such content.
If these projects may be published, you must get permission by Skype brand help before using any of the Skype brand assets or images.

Don’t use the Skype name as the leading word or most prominent element in your publication, seminar, or conference title.
Broadcasts, movies, and podcasts
