How about the increasingly popular...

MyProduct is a trademark of MyCompany.
Other trademarks are trademarks of their respective owners.

You see it everywhere now in one tautological form or another. Not that
I'm complaining. Well do I remember searching grumpily through the ads
in trade magazines to find out what was a trademark of whom, before my
employer discovered the "other trademarks belong to whomever the hell
they belong to" formula. And a lawyer gave it his official (or at
least his well-paid) blessing.

If God intended one space between sentences, why do we have two thumbs?
