"Cocoa Touch" trademark

Apple has filed a trademark application for "Cocoa Touch," the software toolset that allows developers to access the Multi-Touch and accelerometer features in the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch. Apple has filed under International Class 009 in the U-S, seeking a trademark in the programming, data recovery and data analysis category. The Cocoa Touch API framework is included in the iPhone SDK.

Filed with the US Patent & Trademark Office on Monday, application 77558260 asserts a "claim of priority" over an earlier application filed March 6 in Trinidad and Tobago under International Classifications 038 and 042, covering "services, scientific, research, design and telecommunications."

Cocoa Touch was publicly unvieled at the WWDC in June, and was included in the
IPhone SDK Beta version 2.0 released in late March.
