A: To seek permission to use a trademarked phrase, you should try to identify the owner of the trademark and contact them directly. You can search the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database or other relevant sources to find the trademark owner's contact information. If you are unable to locate their contact details, consider consulting a trademark attorney to assist you in the process of reaching out to the trademark owner.
