    Hi guys,

    I jumped on the Pokemon Go hype and published a "Pokemon Go Beginner Guide" on Kindle (Amazon).

    Now I realized there could be some legal issues. I think I am not allowed to have an ebook published cause I checked TESS now (yes I know a bit late) and it says electronic publications are included to trademark rights.

    See here --> http://www.pic-upload.de/view-31422755/Pastedimageat2016_08_0912_36PM1.png.html

    What I don´t understand is, is it just the logo "Pokemon Go" that I am not allowed to use or am I also not allowed to have an ebook guide at all?

    I will really appreciate it if anybody could help me.

    You cannot use their logo mark, character images.. so i would use their colors, and the illustration treatment they use in the app/characters to style your guide to make it "LOOK" like it.. but not using any intellectual property.. You have to also have a disclaimer saying you are /the book is not affiliated in any way with Pokemon.

    Do I understand right, it is ok to publish a beginner guide for Pokemon Go as long as I dont use the logo and mention in my disclaimer that I am not associated with the company?
