Since submitting the trademark application, I’ve been using the TM beside my logo. Wikipedia: “The trademark symbol (™) is a symbol to indicate that the preceding mark is a trademark. It is usually used for unregistered trademarks, as opposed to the registered trademark symbol (®) which is reserved for trademarks registered with the appropriate government agency.” Today, I can place the registered mark ® beside MyKaiju® signifying that the word “My Kaiju” belongs to me. Wikipedia: “The registered trademark symbol is a symbol that provides notice that the preceding word or symbol is a trademark or service mark that has been registered with a national trademark office. A trademark is a symbol, word, or words legally registered or established by use as representing a company or product. The trademark owner can be an individual, business organization, or any legal entity. A trademark may be located on a package, a label, a voucher, or on the product itself. For the sake of corporate identity, trademarks are often displayed on company buildings. It is legally recognized as a type of intellectual property.” I look forward to proudly using my mark on various items and products in the future. Thank you for your support.
