This Trademark Usage Policy will show you the proper use of CoreCodec, Inc trademarks and logos.
Use the correct symbol
When referencing CoreCodec trademarks and registered trademarks, always include the proper notation after the name and logo. (® for Registered Trademarks and ™ for Trademarks) Failure to do so dilutes our trademark protection. In text it is only necessary to annotate the first instance of the trademark in a given document or piece. After the first instance you may drop the ® or ™ after the word. When using logos, always include the ® or ™ in every instance. Logos may only be used under license from CoreCodec.
Use full, proper, trademarked brand names
Always use the full, proper trademarked brand names in all communications. CoreCodec brands are part of a brand system by which each name begins with the word "Core" Therefore, full, proper, trademarked brand names are "CorePlayer", "CoreAVC", and "CoreUI" Never abbreviate a CoreCodec brand to create an acronym.
Do not alter brands or logos
When using a CoreCodec brand, never vary the spelling, add or delete hyphens, make one word two, or use a possessive or plural form of the CoreCodec brand. When using a CoreCodec logo, never modify the design, add or delete any elements or words, change any colors or proportions.
The CoreCodec Logo
The CoreCodec logo must be used as a stand-alone icon to connote origination of CoreCodec, without other logos and trademarks associated with it.
Only CoreCodec products and services may be used in conjunction with the CoreCodec logo.
CoreCodec brands & third party trademarks
Do not combine the CoreCodec brands with third party trademarks. Third party names and logos cannot be used in conjunction with CoreCodec brands and logos in product names except to connote that CoreCodec technology is included. CoreCodec brands and logos may not be used as part of the product name for any third party product.
When materials are co-branded, the prominence of the CoreCodec logo should be at least proportionate to its contribution to the partnership. Therefore, CoreCodec's logo should be of equal size and prominence with an equal partner. If CoreCodec is the dominant partner, the CoreCodec logo should be larger than partner logos. If CoreCodec is one of several lesser partners in an initiative headed by a dominant partner, CoreCodec’s logo should be at least of equal prominence and size with the lesser partners, but smaller than the dominant partner. In partner promotions, the CoreCodec logos cannot be altered in any way.
Each name, term or mark that is a registered trademark must include the applicable mark and copyright statement when it is used.
