Apple’s Attempt to Trademark ‘Apple Music’ Denied Following Mishandled Application

  • Apple’s attempt to register the trademark ‘Apple Music’ was rejected due to an error in trying to include live music performances in the application.
  • Despite the rejection, the court confirmed that Apple had the prior right to the trademark, however, an appeal overturning their application was won by Bertini.
  • Despite the complete trademark rejection, Apple’s legal avenues, including laws against ‘passing off’, protect the ‘Apple Music’ name, making it unlikely for misuse by others.
