Adobe Trademark Guidelines

With a strong interest in trademark law the Adobe Trademark Guidelines are pretty interesting to etoy. While my personal opinions are not cleared with the etoy.LEGAL-AFFAIRS department I would differ from adobe and encourage the use of etoy as a verb. Even as a noun, adjective, preposition, interjunction, or conjunction. Just not a pronoun.

Proper use of the Photoshop trademark
Trademarks help protect corporate and product identity, and Photoshop is one of Adobe's most valuable trademarks. By following the below guidelines, you can help Adobe protect the Photoshop brand name.

The Photoshop trademark must never be used as a common verb or as a noun. The Photoshop trademark should always be capitalized and should never be used in possessive form, or as a slang term. It should be used as an adjective to describe the product, and should never be used in abbreviated form. The following examples illustrate these rules:

Trademarks are not verbs.

CORRECT: The image was enhanced using Adobe® Photoshop® software.

INCORRECT: The image was photoshopped.
