* ''Series/TheDailyShow'': While reporting on Disney applying for a trademark on the name "SEAL Team 6" just days after the death of Osama bin Laden, Jon Stewart tried to beat them at their own game by trademarking ''Disney/TheLionKing''. When he found out it's already trademarked, he trademarked the "TM" on the ''Lion King'' logo.

* Creator/GamesWorkshop's Lord of the Rings models have trademarks accompanying all character names on the boxes, which is perfectly justifiable considering they don't own the rights to the characters as they're producing the game on license from New Line Cinema. Doesn't make it any less silly when an article on ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' includes said trademark includes said trademarks every time they mention Bilbo™ or Gandalf™. They seem to have caught on on how silly it looks so later issues have just written the names in italics.

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®]].

* Every time someone mentions the term RPG in ''VideoGame/{{Segagaga}}'', there's a disclaimer that pops out to tell us that "[=RPG=]s are a trademark of [[BandaiNamcoEntertainment Bandai]]" [[note]]Allegedly a [[TakeThat jab]] to Bandai's unsuccessful attempt [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope to trademark the acronym]].[[/note]]
* The [[BandaiNamcoEntertainment Namco Museum]] {{Compilation Rerelease}}s on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation was originally five volumes, each represented on the cover as a letter from Namco's logo: N, A, M, C, and O. When Namco Museum Encore was later released on the same system, Namco followed the previous pattern by having the boxart be the ® from the Namco logo.
