“On November 04, 2012, The Trademarks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union published Apple’s trademark application for the Leaf in the Apple logo,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple. “Yes, just the leaf and nothing more.”

“Apple’s UK attorneys officially filed the application yesterday,” Purcher reports. “The filing covers ten International Classes. Apple’s legal team literally buried their application under everything imaginable. Some listings were interesting if not logical, like a television and headgear. But other entries were silly, such as adding a dog whistle, whips and saddlery.”

Purcher reports, “The motivation is unknown at this point in time and yes, it’s definitely a strange one, that’s for sure.”
