In such references, it is important that you are truthful and do not disparage Easysnap or mislead the public. Also you must be clear and accurate as to the nature of the relationship between yourself and Easysnap Technology.

Examples of "Fair Use"

  1. When you are specifically referring to an Easysnap® product. For example “Easysnap® packaging is safe because...”

A packaging featuring the Easysnap technology opening system is an “Easysnap”. You should refer to it by the name "Easysnap", as from our registered Easysnap Word Mark, in all written and spoken recurrences.
