Re: trademark???



I checked the information and, “Kodak”, “Big Boy” are listed on their official registered trademark list. What I can’t figure out is what that means. The person in charge is “out of the office” of course, so I am hoping someone here will know.

Can I use them in my story, do I just make sure they are spelled right, do I put an (R) next to the word, put them in quotes, in caps, do I make it some sort of generic, “magic camera moment”, or, “family style restaurant”???

I also want to use the game, “Connect Four”- it is not listed on the INTA website list, but they tell you it is not an exclusive list.

Thanks for any help you can offer. Mary
