There’s A Trademark for That

Apple has been granted a trademark for the well-known slogan “There’s an App for That“, which has been used in many commercials advertising the App Store and its extensive selection of applications. I’m not brushed up on Trademark Law, but this will probably reduce (or cease) all the adverts that mock the slogan, for example Verizon’s “There’s a Map for That” campaign.

The correspondent listed for THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT is LISA G. WIDUP of APPLE INC., 1 INFINITE LOOP # MS3TM, CUPERTINO, CA 95014-2083 . The THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT trademark is filed in the category of Advertising, Business & Retail Services , Computer & Software Services & Scientific Services .

The description provided to the USPTO for THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT is Retail store services featuring computer software provided via the Internet and other computer and electronic communication networks; retail store services featuring computer software for use on handheld mobile digital electronic devices and other consumer electronics.

Apple coined the phrase, so they fully deserve the trademark. Also, you owe Apple 3¢ every time you say it, starting… now.
