U.S. trademark law Edit

A trademark disclaimer is

a statement that the applicant or registrant does not claim the exclusive right to use a specified element or elements of the mark. The purpose of a disclaimer is to permit the registration of a mark that is registrable as a whole but contains matter that would not be registrable standing alone, without creating a false impression of the extent of the registrant’s right with respect to certain elements in the mark.

The disclaimer is usually in the following form:

NO CLAIM IS MADE TO THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO USE "xxxx xxxxx" APART FROM THE MARK AS SHOWN ("xxxx xxxxx" being two words used in the registered mark).
