Apple Acquired Lightning Trademark From Harley-Davidson - Patently Apple

Wauw, Apple was using the “Lightning” without owning the trademark, until today:

The EU Patent & Trademark Office officially published two Apple trademark applications for “Lightning” under numbers 011399821/862. What’s interesting about this filing is that it clearly illustrates that Apple had acquired the trademark from Harley-Davidson which is still protected until 2013.

Talking about Lightning, now that my Mini arrived I have a Lightning adapter of my own ;-)
