Apple Trademarks Its Distinctive Store Design
Technology retailer gains a registered trademark for the "distinctive design and layout" of its 400 stores around the globe.
Apple has recently gained a new registered trademark for the “Distinctive Design & Layout” of its 400 stores worldwide. Originally filing for the trademark in May of 2010, Apple was finally granted the trademarks on Tuesday the 24th of January.
The trademark consists of two similar designs, one being in color, the other black and white. Both represent the typical Apple store layout we all know, which consists of wide tables in the middle of the store, and benches and shelves around the sides where customers can test out the latest products for sale.
