Brief explanation of each mark

What should we do if we want to display a symbol (® mark) indicating that it is a registered trademark on a smartphone, etc.?

In this article, we will show you how to input each symbol using the iPhone.

*We have provided information on the meaning and differences of each mark and the different types of marks to be used depending on whether they are registered trademarks or not in a separate article. If you would like to know the difference in the meaning of each mark, please click here.

Only the meaning of each symbol is briefly reviewed below.

The Ⓡ mark is a “registered trademark” in English, meaning a “registered trademark”.
There are no specific regulations regarding the use of the Ⓡ mark, but it is mainly used by placing it in a small corner of a registered trademark (brand name, logo, etc.).

On the other hand, the TM mark is simply the “trade mark” in English, i.e., the display of a “trademark”. Therefore, it can be applied to trademarks that have been applied for but not yet registered or trademarks that have not been applied for in the first place without any problem.
The TM mark is used in the same way as the above example of the use of the Ⓡ mark, by placing it slightly in the corner of the trademark (brand name, logo, etc.).
