Use of Registered Trademarks “®” and other marks in your contest

Use of the ® symbol prior to registering your new logo may be considered against the law by your local government agency. As an example for many of our Clients from the United States, the United States body that governs such registrations explains clearly when and how you can use ®, TM and SM marks. 

Administrators will request that designers replace any entries that contain the ® mark to avoid any potential issues for all parties.
