Google’s struggle in registering the word “Glass” as a trademark for its pc-powered tech glasses seems to have cleared a huge hurdle.
Google filed an application in the previous year on a trademark for its “Glass” word, which covers PC hardware and components displayed in the same font showcased in its marketing promotion. However, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office maintained the American giant’s bid.
Google finally agreed to a settlement with two firms that objected its planned trademark. These firms involve Factory Holding Company 25, S.L., a Spanish-based firm that offers a software platform for handhelds; and Border Stylo, LLC, a developing company for a “Write on Glass” browser extension.
Both firms went against Google’s filings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, alleging their “Glass” trademarks were strikingly alike to Google app.
The settlement aids Google in addressing a key aspect brought about a federal trademark examiner operating on its app.
The American search engine firm managed to successfully register a trademark for the “Google Glass” term.
