I am in the process of moving forward with production and I want to use my logo and name more (tags, website). I was not planning on starting the federal registration process just yet (money, time). Do you suggest using the TM symbol at this time?
The trademark symbol is a symbol used to indicate an assertion 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 registered trademarks.
Yeah thats what its used for.
And yes I would agree to wait to register your name for later.
