Maybe you should try to understand some basics of fonts, their naming schemes, their encodings, how LaTeX can distinguish between hundreds of characters when a TeX font encoding (TFM) has only 128 slots and a virtual TeX font encoding (VF) has 256 slots.

In LaTeX you would put in the preamble

  \usepackage{times}		% {\rm,\sf,\tt}default = {ptm,phv,pcr}
%  \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}	% other font encodings: TS1, T2A, T2B, T2C, X2, LCY, OT2, LY1, T5

to be able to make use of a font depending extra set of characters from the textcomp package. Depending on the file's input encoding you could then use ® directly or \textregistered.
