One day after Japan made Apple’s trademark for the iWatch public knowledge, four more countries have followed suit.
9to5Mac first uncovered an application in Mexico made by Maria Teresa Eljure Tellez, Head of Trademark Department at Arochi, Marroquín, & Linder, S.C, on behalf of Apple. The iWatch trademarks were made under two categories, one for the hardware and the other for software, and were filed on June 3. MacRumors also uncovered trademark applications in both Taiwan and Turkey. In each country, Apple turned to law firms it had used before to register other trademarks, such as “iPad.”
Not long after, a reader also uncovered the application Apple had made in Colombia on June 4.
Including Japan and Russia, this brings the number of countries with an iWatch trademark application to six. Such a worldwide and well coordinated effort can only mean that it’s just a matter of time before Apple officially acknowledges the iWatch. We hope, anyway.
