Apple now seeks trademark for iWatch in Mexico

Apple now seeks trademark for iWatch in Mexico
On Monday we told you how Apple had allegedly filed for the trademark iWatch in Japan on June 3rd. Now on Tuesday comes word that Apple had submitted a similar application with the trademark offices in Mexico and Taiwan on the same day, two days before submitting a request to trademark the iWatch name in Russia.

Apple's application with Mexico's Institute of Industrial Property was leaked and revealed the word iWatch in big block letters. The Mexican filing uses Apple's 1 Infinite Loop address in Cupertino, California but was officially submitted by Maria Teresa Eljure Tellez. Ms. Tellez happens to be the Head of the Trademark department at Mexico-based law firm Arochi, Marroquín, & Linder, S.C. Apple has used this firm in Mexico before for other trademarks filed in the country, including the one for the Apple iPad.

The filings for the other countries don't reveal anything new about the Apple iWatch with the question right now whether we will see the device come to market in 2013 or 2014. An Apple iWatch is expected to allow the user to read and write texts and emails, navigate, and receive notifications about calls and other messages.

Maybe they're afraid someone, somewhere might have already come up with the name 'iWatch' just like it happened with 'iPhone' and trademark it before people get to say 'aha!'.

Soon they'll just patent every word in the dictionary with an added "i" infront, you know, just to "be safe" in case someone uses it "first".

Makes no sense, most of the populace can't pronounce iWatch; they should consider iReloj.
