Hi,

Can anyone riddle me this, and send the response to me via email as well as to the list (I'm on digest)?

When does one use TM to follow a brand, and when does one use (R)? Do you use one for a company name, and the other for a product name? Does it signify a legal difference in the type of trademark a company has for that brand? Or do people just use what looks neat in their eyes?

Am I correct in thinking that you only need to use e.g. Windows (tm) the first time I mention it, and there's no need to use the (tm) for Windows in the remainder of the document?

Can I just suffice with something like "All brands and trademarks are the property of their respective owners." at the bottom of a document?

Thanks!
