apple trademark launchpad mission control

Apple’s recent event that gave us a sneak peek into OS X Lion’s upcoming features unveiled its Mission Control and LaunchPad features, and Apple hasn’t wasted any time filing for trademarks for its new features. The fruity company actually filed trademark applications for Lion and Mission Control a good two weeks before the event and a third trademark application for LaunchPad was filed on the day of Apple’s event itself. Apple has filed for trademarks under a total of six International Trademark Classes and covering them for such things such as being an Application Service Provider (ASP), being a provider of education and entertainment service and all sorts of telecommunications. Regardless of whether Apple files the trademark applications or not, you can bet that software manufacturers out there will be scrambling to come up with improvements to their own offerings in order to replicate or outdo Apple’s newest features.
