Trademark and Service Mark Usage Guidelines: Introduction

Our trademarks and service marks identify our products so that consumers know they are buying Butler’s high-quality products and services. Butler Manufacturing (“Butler”) has gained valuable rights by the proper and continuous usage of its trademarks and service marks to identify its goods and services. If such marks are used improperly, their value can become diluted or generic. Properly using our trademarks by following these trademark usage guidelines protects and preserves the value of our marks and the Butler brand.

What is a Trademark and Service Mark?

Trademarks and service marks are words, names, symbols, devices, designs, phrases, sounds, or colors adopted and used by Butler to identify its goods and services and to distinguish them from other goods and services. The primary function of a trademark is to indicate the source of goods. It also implies a consistency of quality since it assures the customer that all goods bearing that trademark are of the same quality. Trademarks are usually noted with either a ™ or a ® symbol. Service marks are usually noted with a SM or a ® symbol. In the United States, a trademark that is noted by a ™ or a service mark that is noted by a SM has not been registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and a trademark or service mark noted with an ® has been registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Trademarks, however, may also be registered internationally, and each country has different laws regarding the proper notation of trademarks.
Referential Trademark and Service Mark Usage

You may use a Butler trademark, service mark, or product name to refer specifically to such Butler product or service in marketing and promotional materials, books, conferences, applications, demonstrations, etc. You are permitted to use a Butler trademark referentially provided that:

• You adhere to these Butler Trademark and Service Mark Usage guidelines.
• You do not disparage Butler or Butler products and services.
• You display your name or logo more prominently than any Butler trademark.
• You include a disclaimer that Butler does not sponsor, affiliate, or endorse your product and/or services.

General Trademark and Service Mark Usage Guidelines

1. Always spell the trademark correctly. Avoid any variations.

2. Use appropriate markings. Always capitalize the product name and designate the trademark with the appropriate ™ or ® symbol. Also, the first usage or most prominent usage of a Butler product name must be used in conjunction with the Butler® trademark and in the same type size, font, color and line.

3. Always use Butler trademarks as adjectives that describe the generic product. Trademarks are proper adjectives describing a specific thing; therefore, they should be used in conjunction with the noun (generic name) they modify (e.g., Butler Builder®dealer). Since a primary trademark is not a noun, it is not to be pluralized, such as “Scrubolts”.

4. Do not use any Butler trademark as your trademark, service mark, trade name, domain name, product name, or logo. Butler trademarks identify the goods and services of Butler Manufacturing. No third-party may use any Butler trademark as their trademark, service mark, trade name, domain name, product name, or logo. You must have your own distinct trademark, service mark, trade name, domain name, product name, or logo that does not include any Butler trademarks. You may, however, referentially use the Butler trademark in connection with your product. Also, you may not use a variation, combination, or abbreviation of a Butler trademark.

5. Attribute ownership of Butler trademarks to Butler. When you refer to a Butler trademark, please include the following notice of trademark attribution where appropriate, such as on your product, printed materials, and online.
Example of correct usage:
“Butler and Butler Builder are trademarks or registered trademarks of Butler Manufacturing in the United States and/or other countries.”

6. Avoid using words like “original” or “genuine” in association with the trademark. This implies there may be products of others bearing the same trademark.

Specific Trademark and Service Mark Usage Guidelines

1. Logos. You may not use any Butler logos (including buttons and graphic symbols) without a trademark license from Butler. All usage of trademark logos shall be pursuant to these guidelines and any other guidelines associated with that logo. Please refer to Butler’s Logos and Usage Policy.

2. Merchandise items. You may not manufacture, sell, or give away merchandise items, such as T-shirts and mugs, bearing Butler trademarks or logos, except pursuant to an express written trademark license from Butler.

3. Slogans and taglines. You may not use or imitate a Butler slogan or tagline.
