Tensa Logo Usage Requirements
The logo above left is incorrect. The registered
trademark symbol for Tensa has been omitted. If our copyrighted logo
is not properly protected, undesirable companies, such as those who market
exercise videos, could take our trademark and use it on their own products.
The logo on the right is correct, since it displays the registered trademark
symbol prominently. However, you should make sure that the symbol
is not larger than half the size of our logo. It seems that a company
has trademarked the circled-R and allows the trademark office to use it
only a small version.
The logo on the left is strictly prohibited, since
it resembles too closely the logo of another international organization.
An acceptable version is shown at right, which has absolutely nothing in
common with the other organization's logo.
The two logos above have been approved for use to
represent TV parties and dinner parties, respectively (although the symbols
are sometimes alternated.) These are generally used on Interstate
Members of Tensa are strictly prohibited from using
the organization's logo on their stationery, license plates, toilet paper,
etc. without making it abundantly clear that the logo signifies that the
person is a member, rather than the entire organization itself.
Uninformed members of the general public might otherwise assume that Tensa
is based in Rootstown, OH, or some similar location, rather than the widely-respected,
largely unzoned metropolis of Houston.
This logo may be used only by fans of The
Grateful Dead ("The World's Best Mediocre Defunct Band") Like the
band itself, this logo can be appreciated only when your consciousness
has been altered or, preferably, removed entirely.
