Tip of the Week

If you´re using a trademark or service mark, be sure to:

*Capitalize the first letter.
*State on your packaging and/or advertising that your company owns the mark.
*If you´ve registered the mark, use an R with a circle around it to indicate this.
*If you´ve registered the mark only within your state or not at all, use the letters TM for trademark or SM service mark to indicate your ownership.
*Enforce your rights by notifying other businesses or the media if they´re improperly using your mark.
