    OpenCL name usage

    For software made by me (together with a couple of colleagues - i am a student, computer science)
    can we use "OpenCL" as part of the title?
    I (we) don't intend in selling and/or distributing our software/code other than through a license like the GNU GPL. The project at this point is too complex to be developed in all areas in the same rithm and i've thought that splitting it up into parts that may work together but do not have to is not a bad idea.
    Even though the ideas behind may apply (and code may be changed without difficulty) to other languages than OpenCL most of the stuff was thought/built having in mind OpenCL.

    The project WHC [1] could be broken into :

    WHC OpenCL IDE - IDE for OpenCL
    WHC Clinfo - system hw info
    WHC OpenCL Network Workload Balance
    Am i allowed to do this ? If not could you please detail what restrictions are imposed concerning this matter/ where could i find more info ? (most info was regarding implementing OpenCL, i managed to find a similar problem - regarding another IDE - but the answer din not clarify anything in my case)

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    I'm not a lawyer and I don't work for Apple. Personally, I would include the name of the university.
