Rules for Proper Use of WhatsWhat Trademarks

Trademarks are adjectives used to modify nouns; the noun is the generic name of a product or service. As adjectives, trademarks may not be used in the plural or possessive form. An appropriate generic term must appear after the trademark the first time it appears in a printed piece, and as often as is reasonable after that. For a list of suggested generic terms see the WhatsWhat Trademark List. Always spell and capitalize WhatsWhat’s trademarks exactly as they are shown in the WhatsWhat Trademark List. Do not shorten or abbreviate WhatsWhat product names. Do not make up names that contain WhatsWhat trademarks.

Proper trademark notice and attribution
a) On product, product documentation, or other product communications that will be distributed, use the appropriate trademark symbol (TM, SM, ®) the first time the WhatsWhat's trademark appears in the text of the advertisement, brochure, or other material.
b) Refer to the WhatsWhat Trademark List for the correct trademark symbol, spelling of the trademark, and generic term to use with the trademark. Generally, the symbol appears at the right shoulder of the trademark.
c) Include an attribution of WhatsWhat’s ownership of its trademarks within the credit notice section of your product, product documentation, or other product communication.

WhatsWhat website Telephone Logo,  WhatsWhat Mobile Telephone Logo are registered trademarks or trademarks of WhatsWhat.

WhatsWhat Trademark List

A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services. Also, as trade dress, it can be the appearance of a product or its packaging, including size, shape, color, texture, graphics, and appearance (e.g, concept store or retail store or website). The following is a non-exhaustive list of WhatsWhat’s trademarks and service marks. When using the marks in publications, include the appropriate ™, or ® symbol on first use. The list also includes a suggested generic term for each trademark. For all publications, include an appropriate generic term after the trademark the first time it appears. Trademarks are adjectives, and should not be made into verbs or made plural or possessive. The absence of a product or service name or logo from this list does not constitute a waiver of WhatsWhat’s trademark or other intellectual property rights concerning that name or logo.
