A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services. Also, as trade dress, it can be the appearance of a product or its packaging, including size, shape, color, texture, graphics, and appearance (e.g, retail store or website).

The following is a non-exhaustive list of BioTechnology’s trademarks and service marks.

When using the marks in publications that will be distributed only in the United States, include the appropriate ™, ℠, or ® symbol on first use. For publications that will be distributed outside the United States, do not include trademark symbols. Instead use the appropriate trademark attribution notice, for example: Incubator and Blue-Eye are trademarks of BioTechnology Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries and regions.

The list also includes a suggested generic term for each trademark. For all publications, include an appropriate generic term after the trademark the first time it appears. Thereafter, the generic term should appear frequently with the trademark. (These generic terms are only suggestions, and there may be other words that are equally appropriate.)

Trademarks are adjectives, and should not be made into verbs or made plural or possessive. For more information on how to use BioTechnology’s trademarks, refer to the document titled, “Guidelines for Using BioTechnology Trademarks,” or contact the Trademark team.

The absence of a product or service name or logo from this list does not constitute a waiver of BioTechnology’s trademark or other intellectual property rights concerning that name or logo.
