What is a Trademark?

A distinctive design, picture, emblem, logo, or wording (or combination of these) that is affixed to goods for sale to identify the manufacturer as the source of the product and to distinguish them from goods sold or made by others. Please see the list of PreSonus trademarks below.

PreSonus’ trademarks, service marks, trade names, and trade dress are valuable assets. In following these guidelines, you help us protect our valuable trademark rights and strengthen our corporate and brand identities. By using a PreSonus trademark, in whole or in part, you are acknowledging that PreSonus is the sole owner of the trademark and promising that you will not interfere with PreSonus’ rights in the trademark, including challenging PreSonus’ use, registration of, or application to register such trademark, alone or in combination with other words, anywhere in the world, and that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute any PreSonus trademark. The goodwill derived from using any part of a PreSonus trademark exclusively inures to the benefit of and belongs to PreSonus. Except for the limited right to use as expressly permitted under these Guidelines, no other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise.
