The _Writer's Digest_ often has ads from companies like DuPont telling you
how to use their trademarks. Pick up a copy and peruse at will!

Dear writers,

I have written some technical documentation and make frequent references
to products and company names (like IBM, DOS, WINDOWS, etc.).

Can I do this freely or do I have to list all these names and state
that they are tradenames? Is there a standard phrase/procedure for this

Thanks in advance for your kind help!
