A humorous way to make Things™ stand out is to add Random UsefulNotes/{{Trademark}} Symbols® everywhere. May be used as a Social Commentary® on our increasingly homogenised, commercialised World®, but more often than not, done just because of the RuleOfFunny™. They can also be used in SarcasmMode (perhaps in conjunction with ScareQuotes) to passive-aggressively imply that something exists only as a concept™; for example, some people refer to "Global Warming™". Another sarcastic variation is to sprinkle TradeSnark over [[StrawmanFallacy your paraphrase of an opponent's position]] to imply that he's using the term in question as [[ConceptsAreCheap a meaningless buzzword®]].

* TheIncredibleHulk [[HulkHogan Hogan]] gained ire from Marvel, and, under the threat of a lawsuit, the WWE had to pay residuals to Marvel every time the name was used. Pointedly, when Hogan went to the WCW, he quickly changed his character to "Hollywood Hogan", presumably because TBS wasn't thrilled about paying.

Hogan later personally bought out Marvel's claim on his ring name.
