What Is The Difference Between "TM" And "®" Symbols?

The “TM” symbol can be used by anyone who is making some type of claim to a set of words, symbols and/or designs. The “®” symbol can only be used after a trademark is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Even if you have filed a trademark application, you cannot use the “®” until official registration is obtained.
