iPad mini

US Patent And Trademark Office, denied Apple’s application to trademark iPad Mini. Apple received a letter in January from the USPTO stating, “Registration is refused because the applied-for mark merely describes a feature or characteristic of applicant’s goods.” The letter then continues to break down the meaning of the word iPad mini,”the wording merely describes a feature of applicant’s goods, namely, a small sized handheld tablet computer.” Apple has another 3 months to appeal the letter.
