The September 1995 issue of the STC magazine, "INTERCOM," contained an
article called "Using and Abusing Trademarks," by Judy Petersen. The article
recommended several sources for updated trademark info:
1) Writer's Digest - a column called "Trademark Updates." Write to Writer's
Digest, Box 2123, Harlan, IA 51593, USA.
2) The U.S. Trademark Association's free Trademark Hotline. Call (212)
3) The International Trademark Association. They sell an editorial package
with a checklist of about 4,000 correctly spelled trademarks and their
generic terms. Contact: International Trademark Association, 1133 Avenue of
the Americas, New York, NY 10036-6710, USA.
