Proper Use of Our Trademarks
SGI trademarks are the principal means by which we identify our company, products, and activities to the public and by which the public, in turn, has come to recognize our company.
The great success of SGI is due in part to the favorable recognition we have achieved under our company name, and product trademarks such as Altix®, Onyx®, and Origin®.
You may cite our trademarks properly as outlined herein to refer accurately to our products and services.
You may not, however, use our logos and design trademarks (as opposed to our trademarks that consist solely of words) without our prior written authorization.
In addition, you may not use our trademarks:
Please use the appropriate trademark notice (®, , or SM) with our trademarks. As used herein:
® indicates a trademark registered in the United States, which is either a trademark or a registered trademark in all other countries where it is used.
indicates a trademark that is presently unregistered.
SM indicates a service mark that is presently unregistered.
Wherever possible, the trademark notice should appear in superscript in a size smaller than the mark itself and without parentheses. Where such formatting is not available, however, place the appropriate letters in parentheses next to the mark.
Our trademarks are adjectives (brand names) modifying nouns (the generic product type). Please follow these uidelines in using our trademarks:
When you use our trademarks in any materials, please include a brief statement attributing ownership of these trademarks to us.
This attribution should identify each mark used, attribute it to its proper owner by name, and indicate whether the trademark is registered.
Silicon Graphics, SGI, Altix, Octane, Onyx, Origin, and the SGI logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Silicon Graphics International Corp. or its subsidiaries in the United States and/or other countries.
Please note that the attribution need only identify our trademarks that you actually use in your material and thus may vary from the above example.
Only SGI legal counsel can grant authorization for trademark uses and related issues not in accord with these guidelines. SGI field offices or other personnel do not have this authority. Accordingly, where such permission or exceptions are sought, they must be brought to the attention of the SGI Trademark Department.
