Do I need to include legal symbols in my limited ad text?

Respect and apply all legal standards.

It should go without saying that your ad text should be your own – do not plagiarize! Moreover, you'll avoid many a headache if you take the time to apply all relevant marks to your copy, including copyright (), trademark (™), sales mark (S), registered trademark (®), and other annotations as appropriate. Some ad services will provide basic research into complaints and mediation, so avoid legal problems – and protect your own product names and content – by being cognizant of these legal requirements.
