Guidelines for Third Party Use of McCoyPottery.Com's Trademarks

Trademarks are important business assets that can diminish in value if they are not used correctly. This guide provides some basic information about trademarks and offers specifics on how to properly use the trademarks that belong to McCoyPottery.Com.

If you are a licensee, please refer to your agreement with McCoyPottery.Com for any additional requirements.

Trademark Basics

What is a trademark?

A trademark is a word, name, symbol or device (or a combination thereof) that identifies the goods or services of a person or company and distinguishes them from the goods and services of others. A trademark assures consumers of consistent quality with respect to those goods or services and aids in their promotion.

Why is it important to use marks correctly?

Rights to a trademark can last indefinitely if the owner continues to use the mark to identify its goods and services. If trademarks are not used properly, they may be lost and one of the company's most important assets may lose all of its value. Rights may be lost not only because of a trademark owner's improper use of the mark, but through improper use of the trademark by the public.

Rules for Proper Trademark Usage:

  • Distinguish the trademark from the surrounding text in some way. Capitalize the first letter, CAPITALIZE or italicize the entire mark, place the mark in quotes, use a different type style or font for the mark than for the generic name. Use the trademark ONLY as an adjective, NEVER as a noun or verb, and NEVER in the plural or possessive form. Use a generic term following the mark, for example: McCoyPottery.Com search engine, McCoyPottery.Com search, McCoyPottery.Com web search. NEVER modify a mark, for example, through hyphenation, combination or abbreviation, such as: McCoyaliscious, McCoyoy, McCoyPotterymania Normally, an unregistered mark should be followed by the superscripted letters TM or SM to give notice that the company claims trademark rights in the term. A registered trademark should be followed by the symbol ® to identify the term as a registered trademark. In advertising copy, notice of trademark rights may be provided in a footnote format – e.g., by placing an asterisk adjacent to the mark and placing an appropriate notice at the bottom of the page on which the asterisk appears. Example: *McCoyPottery.Com is a trademark of McCoyPottery.Com Online Services.
  • Trademark rights vary from country to country. Some countries have severe criminal and civil penalties for improper use of the registration symbol. Therefore, do not use the registration symbol (®) in countries where the mark has not been registered.
