After your company has registered its trademarks and has a product ready for the market, it can be very tempting to boost your product through comparison with the product of a competitor. However, such comparisons must be done carefully in order to ensure that you don't infringe upon the trademark rights of a competitor in the market, who will be all too willing to file suit against you.
In instances where you would like to use the trademark of another party, there is important symbolism standards that must be followed in order to ensure that you are protected from liability. These symbols are intended to recognize and identify the owner of the trademark, keep other parties from distorting the trademarks of others, and distinguish the different companies at play.
