What Does R (®) And TM Mean?

Guys we have these symbols on various products and logos but what does it actually meant? Much confusion leads to its meaning but don’t worry we are here for you. Now coming onto Symbol R ® which is used vastly.

Symbol R is put on next to the trademarks which are registered with UPSTO, US Patent & Trademark Office in US or respected Trademark registration agencies in different countries. In some countries use of trademarks without its registration is offensive and is against law. Its not expensive to register Trademark if its not used until now but if its used than its registration cost may vary. It safeguards you against patent infringements or any other infringement suit.

Now its turn for TM ™ which is used for an unregistered trademark, that is, a mark used to promote or brand goods. You can use ™ instead of ® until your trademark is registered. If you use ® without registrations instead of ™ UPSTO or other registration agencies would revoke penalties.

So guys be careful while using them until unless you own a trademark.
