A registered trademark is one in which the owner has filed registration papers (and fees, samples, declarations, etc) with a state or federal agency, stating who owns the bran…d, what the brand is used for, and when it was first used for that. This permits others with ideas for similar brands or products to quickly find out who is already using what. If a trademark has a federal registration then you may see the optional circle-R mark on it "ï¿½". If it is a state registration, you will not see that ï¿½, but may see TM or sm (service mark) on the product or advertising. A trademark owner who has not registered it may have a valid right to prevent others from using the trademark, but will have a more difficult time of proving ownership and that the others are violating his exclusive rights. Answer A trademark or trade mark is a distinctive sign of some kind which is used by a business to uniquely identify its products and services to consumers, and to distinguish its products or services from those of other businesses. A trademark is a type of industrial property which is distinct from other forms of intellectual property. You may not copy a trademark onto your own similar products, whether or not the trademark is registered. Conventionally, a trademark comprises a name, word, phrase, logo, symbol, design, image, or a combination of these elements. There is also a range of non-conventional trademarks comprising marks which do not fall into these standard categories, including distinctive colors and sounds. A similar notion of "trade dress" may apply to an entire operation, such as a golf-course layout, or the style of a restaurant chain. The term trademark is also used informally to refer to any distinguishing attribute by which an individual is readily identified, particularly the well known characteristics of celebrities. Such trademarks can be a style of haircut (Elvis Presley's distinctive ducktail), articles of clothing or accessories (Liberace's flamboyant costumes and jewelry or Elton John's oversize sunglasses), facial hair (Groucho Marx's mustache), or even breast size (Dolly Parton and Pamela Anderson).

PLACEMENT OF REGISTERED TRADEMARK SYMBOL The federal trademark symbol, the encircled R (Â®), needs to be "displayed with the mark" (15 U.S.C. Â§ 1111- see below). Customa…rily, the same is true also when using the superscripted TM (â¢) or SM ( sm ) for marks that are unregistered. No strict placement rule exists. There are only general guidelines and customary placement rules. Typically the symbol is placed at a minimum in the first and/or most prominent usage of the mark in collateral. However, the symbol may be used every time whenever using a trademark. In logos the registration symbol(Â®) is typically placed in upper-right hand corner. Oftentimes you will see it in the bottom right hand corner. In text, the mark should appear directly after the portion of the text that has been registered. The actual trademark statute has been copied and pasted below for reader's convenience. TITLE III - NOTICE OF REGISTRATION Â§ 29 (15 U.S.C. Â§ 1111). Notice of registration; display with mark; recovery of profits and damages in infringement suit Notwithstanding the provisions of section 1072 of this title, a registrant of a mark registered in the Patent and Trademark Office, may give notice that his mark is registered by displaying with the mark the words "Registered in U.S. Patent and Trademark Office" or "Reg. U.S. Pat. & Tm. Off." or the letter R enclosed within a circle, thus Â®; and in any suit for infringement under this chapter by such a registrant failing to give such notice of registration, no profits and no damages shall be recovered under the provisions of this chapter unless the defendant had actual notice of the registration.. (Amended Oct. 9, 1962, 76 Stat. 773; Jan. 2, 1975, 88 Stat. 1949; Nov. 16, 1988, 102 Stat. 1343.) *Note: The amendment of the wording of this term by Public Law 93-596 became effective on January 2, 1975. However, the amendment provides that any registrant may continue to give notice of his registration in accordance with Â§ 29 of the Trademark Act of 1946, as amended Oct. 9, 1962, as an alternative to notice in accordance with Â§ 29 of the Trademark Act as amended by Public Law 93-596, regardless of whether his mark was registered before or after January 2, 1975.
A trademark is a mark used in trade, like a business name, logo, or slogan. Although established trademarks are protected without registration, a registered trademark has been… submitted to the country's trademark office for addition to the registry.
The trademark symbol is part of a name and as such must not be separated from the name. Therefore, a comma would follow the symbol.
Answer 1: A "registered" trademark symbol is the capital letter "R" with a circle around it. And it's always in superscript, to the immediate right of the word or phrase that… has been trademarked. Example: Coca-Cola Â® However, the fact that there's a "registered" trademark, as opposed to just a plain ol' trademark, suggests that there are other kinds of trademarks. And that's a correct assumption... there are. An unregistered trademark is the capital letters "TM" to the immediate right of the trademarked word or phrase, also superscripted. Example: Coca-Colaâ¢ There's also such a thing as a "service mark," which is the capital letters "SM" where the "TM" is seen in the immediately-above example. None of this is to be confused with a copyright notice, which is the capital letter "C" with a circle around it, but not usually superscripted; and usually follows the word "Copyright" and appears before the year in which the copyright is claimed. Example: Copyright Â© 2012 by John Doe The questioner didn't ask what trademarks are, though, and so I'll not go into that here. Answer 2: If the question is how do you make your computer PRINT a circle-R, that would depend on the computer and what software you're running. However, one standard keying system allows you to hold the ALT key and type on the numeric pad to create special symbols. The Circle-R would be Alt-0174, or on a laptop perhaps FN-0174. Most PCs also have a character map from which you can cut and paste any available symbol. Answer 3: On the Mac, simply hold down the "Option" key and type the letter "r." The Mac operating system uses hot keys for many common typographical symbols: Option r: Â® Option g: Â© Option 2: â¢
Yes, if they are likely to be used in trade separate from the book. There are many Harry Potter trademarks, for example.
A trademark is a mark used in trade, such as a business or product name, logo, or slogan. Although trademarks are protected by common law, registration is available. A registe…red trademark is one that has been registered with the government of the country in which business is being conducted.
A non-registered trademark is called 'common law trademark' in Canada and is typically implemented in order to show the intent to trademark. Unfortunately, common law trademar…ks are difficult to defend legally as no registration has been conducted, though they can be very important in the process of appealing an application for a trademark. It is possible for one to appeal a trademark process by arguing that they have been utilizing the name for a longer period of time and be successful. It is, however, true that the only way to protect a mark is to register it as a trademark. The â¢ and Â® marks have no legal significance or meaning in Canada. Thus there are no repercussions to using these marks. Surprisingly neither the â¢ nor the Â® mark appears in official Canadian Trademark Law. Unofficial meaning of the â¢ mark has come to mean unregistered trademarks or in-process trademarks while the Â® has come to mean registered trademark.
Not necessarily, but if you fail to notify someone that the logo is registered, you can't bring suit against them for trademark violation. >>>> Actually, you can recover da…mages if you prove they had actual notice of the trademark registration, or you simply sue them under the laws protecting an unregistered trademark in state or federal courts.

Once the availability of the proposed trademark has been certified, applications and related artwork are filed with the U.S. Patent Office.
An organization or individual wishing to use a slogan, logo, or business name (a "mark") in commerce may wish to register it.
No. Actually, the superscript TM is for designating trademarks in the US that have not yet been registered with the USPTO . If/when you get the trademark registered with …the USPTO, you would use the Â® instead.
It's not required to use the trademark or registered trademark symbols, and some designers feel it clutters the look of the packaging.
If it is your own or you have a license, yes. For example, something originally conceived as a decorative element may become part of a logo.
