A trademark notice should follow the mark.
The registration notice ® or REG. U.S. PAT. & TM. OFF. should be used when a mark has been federally registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for that specific product. If the mark has not been federally registered for any products or for that specific product, then use the letters ™ for the trademark notice.
Frequently in publications and product catalogs the ® or ™ notice is dropped from supplier submissions. To protect the mark in these media, use “brand” after the mark, e.g. MTP brand connector.
An example using trademarks in an on-line catalog page is shown at the bottom of this section.
To acknowledge ownership of the mark, an easy guideline is to identify US Conec as the owner of the mark, e.g. “MTP is a registered trademark of US Conec Ltd” on the first page that the mark is used.
A trademark should only be used as an adjective.
A good test for proper usage is if you can delete the mark from the sentence and the sentence still makes sense.
Trademarks should NOT be used as common adjectives or as a type of connector.
Since trademarks are NOT nouns, they can NEVER be used in the possessive.
Since trademarks are NOT nouns, they can NEVER be used in the plural form.
Example: Use the MTP trademark only for the US Conec fiber optic connector family of products for which it was registered.
Font size should be the same or larger than surrounding related words.
Preferred Type is Arial, either regular or bold face.
Use upper and lower case letters as shown for each trademark in the chart above.
The generic product name must not be capitalized.
Do not change the spelling, proper type form, add or delete terms from the trademark, abbreviate the mark, or change the design.
