Today we learned that Apple’s trademark filing for the saying “There’s an app for that” was approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. According to Trademarkia, the trademark was filed on Friday, December 4, 2009. The catch phrase, which was started by Apple in iPhone commercials has become a popular phrase among many when encountering a situation that could be helped with an app from the App Store.
Trademarkia notes that the trademark status was changed to “STATEMENT OF USE – TO EXAMINER” on October 7th. The trademark is covered under Goods and Services for, “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.”
