TOTAL MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT TRADEMARK POLICY

Total Music & Entertainment, ("TME") owns the trademarks and logos (design marks) (collectively, the "TME Marks") as indicated on the list of TME Marks below (the "TME Mark Table").

 

Reservation of Rights : TME is the owner of all right, title, and interest in the TME Marks. No person or entity may reproduce or use (or authorize the reproduction or use) of the TME Marks in any manner other than expressly authorized by TME. Unauthorized use of TME Marks is strictly prohibited.

TME may, at its sole discretion, modify the TME Marks at any time. Please refer to the TME Mark Table periodically to ensure your compliance. In order to assure compliance and quality of control, TME may request that you provide samples of any marketing, advertising, or other material that includes the TME Marks.

A trademark can be the most valuable asset a company owns. As such, it must be protected. The following are TME's guidelines for using the TME Marks:

 

Guidelines for using TME Marks

Provide Notice: A word mark or logo which has not be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"), should bear the ™ symbol. A word mark or logo that has been registered with the USPTO should bear the ® symbol. These symbols provide notice that TME is asserting trademark in the particular word mark or logo.

Word marks must bear the proper trademark notice symbols (® or ™), in the first and most prominent usage of the mark and again in the first appearance in the body of copy. Notice symbols should always appear with all TME logos. Wherever possible, trademark notice symbols should be superscripted after both word marks and logos. Once the TME Mark is correctly attributed on a document or web page, it is not ordinarily necessary to mark subsequent appearances of the trademark in the piece.

Always use TME Marks as proper adjectives: A trademark is an adjective and should not be used as a verb or noun or in the possessive or plural forms. Every TME Mark has a "product descriptor" (i.e. a noun) that follows the trademark.

Example: TME™ software

Do not alter TME Marks or TME logos: When using a TME Mark, never vary the spelling, add hyphens, make one word two, or use a possessive or plural form of the TME Mark. When using a logo provided by TME, never modify the design, add or delete any words, change any colors or proportions. Only the logo art provided by TME should be used. Other than resizing and replacing the trademark notification, a logo may not be modified in any manner.

 

Do not abbreviate a TME Mark to create an acronym

Example of incorrect use: TMER instead of TME Recordings

The TME logo: The TME logo must be used as a stand-alone icon to connote origination of TME, without other logos and trademarks associated with it.

Only TME products and services may be used in conjunction with a TME logo.

TME product name: No third party logo or mark may be used in conjunction with the TME Marks for TME product names except to connote that TME technology is included with another product or mark. In other words, do not combine the TME Marks with third party trademarks with out the consent of TME.

The TME Marks may not be used as part of the product name for any third party product. Whenever an TME Mark appears with another company trademark or logo, the TME Mark must be at least as large as the trademark or logo of the other company.

In documents produced by TME, properly mark in highest-level headlines and first occurrence in the body of the copy with an ® or ™ all trademarks of any company whose products are cited. In the footnote list both companies' trademarks. Never use third-party logos without written permission from their owners and approval by the TME Marketing Department.

Product Packaging: Special attention should be devoted to the correct use of TME Marks on product packaging. Any TME Mark that is displayed on packaging should be attributed with the appropriate trademark symbol (refer to the TME Mark Table) the first time it appears on each side of the package. Any TME logo that is displayed on packaging should be attributed with the appropriate trademark symbol each time it appears on the package. An attribution footnote, which is most commonly combined with copyright and patent information, should reference each TME Marks that appears on the packaging. Ordinarily, this footnote appears on the back of the packaging.

 

Power Point & Other Presentations
TME Marks, should always be attributed with the proper symbol and footnoted on all presentations that are displayed to the public (sales, trade shows etc). If a presentation is used internally, the TME Marks should be attributed but need not be footnoted.


 

Third Party Licensors
Some TME products include technology used under license from third party licensors. You may not use any such third party trademark without express permission from the owner.


Using footnotes for correct attribution: It is TME's policy to attribute TME Mark use by placing the information in a footnote as follows:

Example: "_____ is a trademark (or a registered trademark) of Total Music & Entertainment"

The blank space should be a list of all TME Marks and TME logos that appear in that particular piece. Footnotes should always be complete sentences, and ordinarily appear on the copyright page, on the last page of the material, or on packaging.

Examples:
"TME is a trademark of Total Music & Entertainment."
"The TME Logo is a trademark of Total Music & Entertainment."
