We posted last week about the potential of Sony trying to trademark the term ‘Let’s Play’, the definition on the trademark application was: ‘Electronic transmission and streaming of video games via global and local computer networks; streaming of audio, visual, and audiovisual material via global and local computer networks’.
Some documents have surfaced online, showing the application date of December 29th, 2015, that give further insight into what Sony was trying to apply to trademark. You can take a look at them here.
The documents also go over features of a logo such as ‘the colours green, black, silver, white and gray is/are claimed as a feature of the trademark’, also on attachment 3 you can see an image of the logo. Underneath the attachments is a refusal that states “Registration of the applied-for mark is refused because of a likelihood of confusion with the mark in U.S. Registration No. 4459011. Trademark Act Section 2(d), 15 U.S.C. §1052(d); see TMEP §§1207.01 et seq. See the enclosed registration.”
