Trademarks might be used incorrectly. Be careful. Please do not confuse two organizations using similar trademarks.
What is a trademark? www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trademarks
One of the organizations may have accidentally used the same trademark as another organization. In other words, two entities may be using the same or similar trademark. But each use of the trademark may be linked to different companies.
Put Simply: Make sure the trademark you see used, is actually tied to the company you think it is connected to. Two different companies might be using the same trademark. You might in fact think you are dealing with say company “A” using a trademark, when in actuality the trademark is being used by company “B”.
Trademark Disclaimer Details
No Trademark Liability: Are you unclear about the trademark disclaimer? If so, remember, it is very possible a trademark you see used actually is from a different company. Do not presume the use of a trademark means the trademark user owns rights to the trademark. An over simplified example: You buy a bottle of Coca Cola® in a foreign country. You presume it is tied with the original Coca Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. But the traditional Coca Cola trademark might be a knock off without license rights to make the beverage that might look and taste like the real thing. Ask your trademark or patent attorney about this if needed.
