美高梅集团 Trademark Guidelines
Revised Tuesday, April 23, 2019
美高梅集团 US, Inc. and its affiliates (“美高梅集团”) consider their brand, service marks and trademarks (“Marks”) among the most valuable strategic assets. 美高梅集团 Marks are extremely important to us because they represent high and consistent quality of the services we provide to our customers, our can-do culture and standards of excellence. Proper use of our Marks is important. To preserve our reputation in high quality services and protect our brand we diligently guard our brand against any violations of our Marks.
The objective of these Guidelines is to ensure that the 美高梅集团 brand and its trademarks/service marks remain reliable indicator of source and quality and that they are protected from inappropriate and unauthorized use
