“Two patent applications that were published in January and February 2010 illustrated how a future iteration of the Magic Mouse might support a new graphics and/or painting program from Apple,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Today we learn, through a document filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office, that Apple might be thinking of resurrecting MacDraw,” Purcher reports.

“In a document filed with the Commissioner for Trademarks in April and only made public today, Apple requests an amendment to registration number 4101317… Apple respectfully requests that the Director correct the owner information for the MacDraw registration, and issue a new certificate of registration. The obvious question becomes, did Apple take assignment of MacDraw for purely historical reasoning or is this an application that Apple is thinking of resurrecting at some point in the future?”
