Basic Guidelines for Proper Use of Trademarks Belonging to American Megatrends
American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI) creates and manufactures key hardware and software solutions for the global computer marketplace, providing the highest quality and compatibility necessary to build today's advanced computing systems. The company's name and key brand families such as AMIBIOS® are known worldwide, synonymous with high-quality computer firmware, software and hardware products as well as industry-leading development and engineering support services. But our trademarks represent more than simply our products; they are a symbol of the company's long history of technological innovation and a pioneering spirit sustained over 30 years of partnership and support of the world's leading computer systems manufacturers.
Proper use and attribution of AMI trademarks by third parties is important. Generally speaking, third parties may use AMI trademarks or product names to refer to our products and services provided they follow typically observed guidelines. However, their use must not mislead consumers as to any sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of a specific company, or of its products or services, by American Megatrends.
When referring to AMI trademarks and the names of the company's software, products, and services on packaging, promotional materials, advertising, web sites and other collateral, please follow standard trademark guidelines such as those available from the International Trademark Association. These guidelines outline the basic protocols for using trademarks and product / service names belonging to American Megatrends in print and online publications.
