After 3 long years, Apple takes hold of the iPhone Trademark
Finally after one long battle that covered the length of three years, Apple has ultimately reached their goal in obtaining the trademark for the iPhone. As it stands, the iPhone is a registered trademark of Apple Inc. – they were been graced with it officially on February 9, 2010. The registration number 3,746,840 covers International Classes 9, 28 and 38 which are presented in a report for clarification. Although it was extremely imperative in wrapping up the iPhone moniker during this whole time, there was an extremely public battle that occurred with Cisco in the US and Comwave in Canada – they were marketing VoIP products under the same name. All the commotion of the process probably wouldn't be where it is now if the iPhone didn't become the handset we all know and love today. Now that one costly and lengthy battle has been won, it looks like there is still a long road ahead as Apple once again is placed in a similar spotlight as they work up for the iPad trademark.

Im so glad THEY WERE BEEN graced with it. Perhaps Phone Arena should be graced with an editor to check for proper grammar.
