Trademarks

Use of Trademarked Names

  1. With the first use of a trademarked product name or term, you must call it by its proper name and use a ™ or ® after it.
  2. Don’t use Sling as a verb.
  3. Do not refer to any of our products in a plural fashion. It is never Slingboxes, but Slingbox devices instead.
  4. Do not make product names possessive. Instead of “the Slingbox’s design,” say “the design of the Slingbox.”
  5. Use an article (the, a) before product names.
