Apple Encountered Problems with the iWatch Trademark on a Domestic Market

The iWatch trademark has been actively pushed forward during the past few weeks. As a result, Apple is now recognized as its official owner in several countries, namely Russia, Japan, Taiwan and some others. Oddly enough, the Cupertino company hasn't yet filed for the iWatch trademark on its domestic market as well as in Europe. Why is it so?

As it turns out, there’s one small outfit in California that prevents Apple from being the only iWatch trademark owner. This company is called OMG Electronics and it is currently working on a device very similar to one Apple is supposed to release very soon. It is a kind of wearable computer (or smartphone) that is capable of making and receiving calls and sending text or image messages.

Anyway, I don’t think it would be a big problem for Apple to make a deal with OMG Electronics, especially since the Cupertino corporation is one of the world's biggest and richest. Apart from that, it is extremely good at patent wars. Well, you probably know that yourself.

There’s one more Apple competitor. This is the British firm called Probendi and its rights for the iWatch trademark apply not only to the British Isles, but to the entire territory of Europe as well. So both markets – American and European – are temporarily closed for the new Apple product. And that is probably the main reason why Cupertino officials remain silent if asked about the iWatch release – why announce a product you don’t even know how to call, right?
