I am writing a science paper for school and I am including the name of a product. Do I need to include the registration symbol after the name of the product?

"The monitor that was used in this experiment was the Garmin Vivoactive (®?)."

  • I sorta, kinda understand what you’re asking but you need to give us more information. What is “a product”? What is “the registered symbol”? What is the purpose of the “scientific paper” - is it a school report or is it going to published in the international journal Nature? – Dale M Nov 6 '19 at 19:23
  • @DaleM I am writing a school report and it goes something like, "The monitor that was used in this experiment was the Garmin Vivoactive (®?)." – caleb lee Nov 6 '19 at 19:49
  • Cool - edit that into your question – Dale M Nov 6 '19 at 21:05
  • This other question has a great answer on why you should use them, despite them not being required. – animuson Nov 12 '19 at 16:56

No, you do not legally have to add the symbol. https://www.nutter.com/ip-law-bulletin/proper-use-of-trademarks-and-trademark-symbols##targetText=Use%20of%20trademark%20symbols%20is,phrase%2C%20and%2For%20logo.

It is just a way to show that something is a registered trademark.
