How to Use Trademark Symbols

SM  and ®. What do they mean and when can I use them? 

Today we’re breaking down the facts about trademark symbols. Whether you have a registered trademark or not, it’s important to understand these symbols so that you can use them correctly within your business.  

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • The meanings behind each of the three different trademark symbols
  • When you can (and cannot!) use these symbols 
  • The benefits of labeling your trademark with an ® symbol as soon as your trademark is legally registered by the USPTO.
