Bug Description

When the docs refer to third-party software/products such as Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Windows, VirtualBox, iPhone and others, do we have an obligation to display the names of the software/products with trademarks? According to various trademark policies, i.e. www.mozilla.org/foundation/trademarks/policy.html, http://www.microsoft.com/about/legal/en/us/IntellectualProperty/Trademarks/Usage/General.aspx, http://www.oracle.com/us/legal/third-party-trademarks/index.html, the names of the products are supposed to be displayed with a trademark or registered trademark symbol along with an attribution to the holder of the trademark.
