Use of IGT Trademarks
Any use of IGT trademarks must follow the following guidelines. All references must:
- (i) be truthful;
- (ii) be clear as to the relationship between you and IGT;
- (iii) not mislead any third party; and
- (iv) not disparage or otherwise damage IGT’s reputation in any way.
General Trademark Rules
- 1. As a trademark identifies the source of a good or service, it may only be used as an adjective that modifies a common noun. Trademarks should never be pluralized, used in the possessive form or used as nouns or verbs.
- 2. Since trademarks should never be used as nouns or verbs, a generic term must be used after each trademark reference. Examples of generic terms are: terminal, game, system, product, etc.
- 3. Usage Examples:
RIGHT: IGT AURORA™ terminals are the best in business.
WRONG: The Aurora is the best in the business. (Used as noun)
WRONG: The Aurora’s processing capability is unsurpassed. (Used as a possessive).
- 4. Trademarks should not be abbreviated or changed in any way.
- 5. In the US, the proper trademark symbol (® or ™) should be used with the first reference. In all other countries, the TM symbol should be used with the first reference.
- 6. Any use of an IGT trademark must be accompanied by a notice of attribution of IGT’s ownership at the end of the accompanying document. The IGT trademarks can be listed individually or as a whole, i.e., “________ and _______ are trademarks of IGT or its affiliates.”
"IGT" as a company name
"IGT" is both a trademark and company name. When "IGT" is used to identify the company, it is considered a trade name. A trade name may be used as a possessive when referring to the company, IGT. A trade name identifies the company and not a particular good or service so the rules for trademarks do not apply. However, the general trademark rules apply when IGT is used as a trademark.
