Apple Files Trademark Application For Term “Joint Venture”

Posted Mar 1, 2010

Today the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published an application by Apple over the term “Joint Venture.” The application number is #77942739 and it was filed under International Classes 35: retail services, International Classes 37: maintenance/repair and consultancy services, International Classes 41: education services, and International Classes 42: hardware and software technical support. Apple is sitting on billions of dollars in cash so it would not be surprising to see them branch out into a service that is completely different than what they are currently involved with just to explore.
