When to use trademark symbols?
The registered trademark symbol appears to the right and above (superscript) of a registered mark. While the mark is an application, and until the mark is registered, the unregistered trademark symbol TM should be used, again above and to the right of the mark. If you are using the name as a trademark, and have no plans to register, you should still put the TM in superscript as it provides notice to other parties that the mark is a trademark for your business.
