If the trademarks are really _registered_ trademarks (i.e. registered
with the US
Patent and Trademark Office), the symbol should be the circled "R", and
the TM symbol. The TM symbol is supposed to be used forn marks that a
company is claiming as trademarks but which have not yet gone through
registration process.

Not a lawyer, but having read quite a lot on trademarks...
