Correct (in USA at least) for copyrighted materials.

A similar situation (in USA at least) applies to trademarks, including
graphic trademarks.

You may mark it with the single character: (TM) without registration.

You may mark it with the single character: (R) only after registration
is granted.

So while in the design stage, include the "circle TM" in the graphic.

You can decide on the registration question at a later date.
