I am entering into a competitive internet market. My company is working on a brochure to market services and, within the brochure, I would like to mention numerous of my competitors. I am looking to compare my success with theirs, and state that I get better results. In doing this, I will state the other companies by name (is this defamation?), and will sometimes mention them via a mark or logo.
Can I have a disclaimer stating that I am not associated with them, and be able to use their names and logos/trademarks without infringing? I am not selling anything with their brand on it, just making a competitive brochure stating I am better.
