GUIDELINES FOR PROPER USE OF TRUCK ADS® TRADEMARKS

Introduction

The name and trademarks of TRUCK ADS, LLC are valuable intellectual property assets. Our trademark is important because the TRUCKADS® and TRUCK ADS® mark serves to identify us as a source of advertising services on the sides of trucks as well as providing products for the outdoor advertising industry. This includes TRUCK ADS® Frame Kits and our premium outdoor banners. Our trademarks provide TRUCK ADS certain legal rights that can be lost through inappropriate use or misuse. That is why you must read and follow our trademark guidelines below. See General Do's and Don'ts Below

NOTICE: Follow these guidelines carefully. Failure to follow these trademark guidelines, subjects your company to potential legal liability and immediate cancellation as an affiliate or reseller.

 
What are Trademarks

A trademark is a word, acronym, logo, logotype, name, symbol, design, tagline, slogan or phrase that identifies a product or service and distinguishes it from similar products or services offered by others involved in interstate commerce. Consequently, TRUCK ADS trademarks are valuable because they represent the standards of excellence and consistent high quality associated with our services and products.

Why We Protect Our Trademarks

Without trademarks, consumers would not be able to distinguish services and products provided by various companies. Businesses would not be able to build brand names in the market place and stand apart from their competitors. For these reasons, it is important to understand the importance of TRUCK ADS trademarks and what we and you must do to protect them.

The owner of a valid trademark may prevent others from using its mark for particular goods or services and may recover monetary damages caused by another's infringement. Trademarks must be used properly and consistently, otherwise the trademark risks becoming generic, making the mark impossible to enforce. This is what happened to the zipper, harmonica, cellophane, yo-yo and kerosene trademarks. This is not going to happen to TRUCKADS® or TRUCK ADS®.

 
Always Use Trademarks as an Adjective

Always use trademarks as an adjective, followed by the appropriate noun (descriptors). Trademarks are adjectives that describe a specific person, place or thing. Using a trademark as an adjective avoids using the trademark in a generic sense. In general, a sentence should make sense with or without the trademark. For a list of appropriate nouns, see our trademark and nouns list.

 
Examples
Correct

dotThe TRUCK ADS® look great on the side of the truck and come in any size.
dotThe TRUCKADS® Frame Kit is easy to install and change out.

Never Alter or Deceptively Spell Federally Registered Trademarks

Always Use the Proper Registration "®" or Symbol "™"

The ® symbol must be used with all of TRUCK ADS registered trademarks. The trademarks in the body of any text and the heading of any text must be followed by the ® symbol. If the formatted ® symbol is not available to you, simply cut and paste the symbol from this page into your website or word document or you may place this html code    &reg;    into your page and the symbol will appear. Do not include a space before the trademark symbol or use italics for the trademark symbol, regardless of the format of text that precedes it. These are minimum requirements for the use of our trademarks. EXAMPLE OF MARK: TRUCKADS® AND TRUCK ADS®

Always Respect Third-Party Trademarks

TRUCK ADS respects third-party trademarks. If you use another company's trademarks including TRUCK ADS® or TRUCKADS®, you must use the appropriate trademark symbol. When third-party trademarks are mentioned and there are no specific trademark attribution guidelines in effect, always use a generic third-party trademark attribution. The Web site maintained by the third-party is a good place to look for its trademark guidelines. You need only mark the third-party trademark if you have information that it is, in fact, a trademark.

Proper attribution must be given to trademarks. Attribution should correspond to order mentioned in the text, with attribution of registered trademarks appearing first.

 
Examples
Correct

dotYour Company Name is the owner of your trademark. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
