iMac, Shuffle trademarks
Apple has filed a figurative trademark application depicting its iMac desktop computer. The filing, which falls under International Classification 009 for computers, claims that "the mark consists of the configuration of a computer, including a flat, roughly triangular shaped stand, a generally flat case having rounded corners, and a rectangular monitor screen within a framing case having a wide lower boarder, all such features arranged in an aesthetically pleasing manner, as shown in the drawing accompanying the Application."
Apple also filed for a figurative trademark symbol for its iPod shuffle under International Classification 009 earlier this month. The filing covers a "portable and handheld digital electronic devices for playing, recording, organizing, transmitting, manipulating, and reviewing audio files."
