* 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.

* Back when UsefulNotes/{{UNIX}} was first released as a commercial product in 1983, AT&T started insisting that people refer to it as "the UNIX(tm) Operating System" or something similar to that. People on {{Usenet}} almost immediately started referring to the OS as "UN*X" as a subtle TakeThat, and there was even one BSD-based product called [[SdrawkcabName "MT XINU"]] whose advertising included such things as a BSD-powered [[StarWars X-Wing]] rocketing away from [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything an AT&T logo wreathed in flames.]] This became less popular after AT&T sold off the UNIX group in the mid-1990s.

* The old gamer legend that back in the day of their apparently short-lived ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' role-playing game, TSR (then-owners of TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons) actually claimed a trademark on the term "[[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]]".
