Apple files for trademark

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) today published Apple's latest trademark/service mark application (#78954417) representing the company's Safari RSS technology. The publication follows four additional patents also published by the USPTO on Tuesday which solidified Apple's right to use its DC connector assembly, a self aligning foot assembly, a method and apparatus for accelerating detection of serial bus device speed signals, and an electronic device holder. Apple in mid-August was granted three patents for its sub-desktop Mac mini system, fluid cooling, and improved image compression techniques. Apple, like other tech companies, is struggling to secure proprietary technologies before competitors patent the technology. Creative was recently awarded a patent on technology used in Apple's iPod line, resulting in a payment of $100 million from Apple to Creative for use of the technology.
