    How to enter "®" , "©" and "™" symbols

    This article shows how to include "®" , "©" and "™" in your articles.
    To conform with trademark law, you must recognise trademarks correctly in your forum posts and web site articles. This article explains how to insert symbols in your posts and articles on this web site.

    Some symbols appear on your key board, for example the ampersand @ , others need to be represented by html symbol codes in a specific format. These symbol codes, form part of the standard html entities supported by all browsers.

    To display the appropriate symbol, type the symbol code terminated with a semicolon, for example the following code will display , "®" "©" and "™" symbols

    & # 174 terminated with a semicolon for ®

    & # 169 terminated with a semicolon for ©

    Trademarks and Brands – Guidelines

    Use of Microchip Trademarks and Brands – Guidelines
    Microchip brand identity is a valuable asset protected by trademark law. Microchip aims to protect this asset by ensuring that its trademarks are used properly by Microchip, its customers, licensees, distributors, vendors, consultants, developers and others. You may use Microchip trademarks and product names to refer to Microchip products and services as long as you follow these Guidelines.

    Properly identify Microchip trademarks, including the trademark symbol (with ®, ™ or SM ) and the trademark’s descriptor, to accurately refer to Microchip products and services. For example:
    dsPIC® digital signal controller
    KEELOQ® technology
    MPLAB® integrated development environment
    PIC® microcontroller
    PowerMate™ software



    Use trademarks as adjectives followed by appropriate descriptors (nouns):
    Right:
    Use a PIC® microcontroller in your next design.
    Wrong:
    Use a PIC in your next design.



    Do NOT use trademarks in the possessive form.
    Right:
    Compare the features of PIC® microcontrollers to other microcontrollers.
    Wrong:
    Compare PIC’s features to other microcontrollers.



    Do NOT use trademarks in the plural form.
    Right:
    Compare all PIC® microcontrollers to other microcontrollers.
    Wrong:
    Compare all PICs to other microcontrollers.



    Do NOT use our trademarks in the title of your website or any part of your domain name.
    Wrong:
    www.pic.com

    www.mypic.com

    www.pic1.com



    Do NOT use Microchip trademarks or logos (or similar marks) in your own product names, service names, trademarks, logos or company names. Instead, you may refer to Microchip products and services to indicate your product’s compatibility with a specific Microchip product or service.


    Right:
    [Your Product Name]for use with PIC® microcontrollers.

    [Your Product Name]runs on PIC® microcontrollers.

    [Your Company] is experienced in designing hardware that works with PIC® microcontrollers.

    Wrong:
    Your Product Name: “MyPIC”

    Your Product Name: “YesPIC”

    Your Product Name: “PICky”
