Samsung files to protect six new Galaxy names

Samsung files to protect six new Galaxy names
From time to time, Samsung has filed for trademark protection on new variations of the Galaxy name that it might use one day.  Back in February, Samsung asked for protection on the Galaxy Axiom, Galaxy Awaken, Galaxy Heir and Galaxy Rite. Paperwork for the Galaxy Grand and the Galaxy Premier were filed back in March along with the Galaxy Metrix, Galaxy Legend and the Galaxy Velvet. Last month Samsung put in the paperwork to protect the Galaxy Sire, Galaxy Perx and the Galaxy Lift. Why not just give the Korean manufacturer trademark protection for all words A-Z as long as they follow Galaxy?

Samsung hadn't requested protection for any Galaxy names in May up to now, but that has changed. On May 10th Samsung asked for trademark protection for the Galaxy Lunge (Serial Number 85621870), Galaxy Forge (Serial Number 8561866), Galaxy Wield (Serial Number 85621864), Galaxy Mission (Serial No. 85621859), Galaxy Rivet (Serial Number 85621854), and the Galaxy Victory (Serial Number 85621853). As usual, under goods and services the filing adds "mobile telephones" and "smartphones". With the Samsung Galaxy S III the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, one might notice certain names that could tie into the event such as the Lunge, and the Victory.

Don't expect all of these names to be used for new handsets in the Samsung Galaxy line. Just because Samsung is protecting these names by asking for a trademark, the names don't necessarily have to be used.

Galaxy Rite sounds like a grocery store; Galaxy Axiom is just too hard to say.

I'm thinking that Sprint's version of the GS3 is going to be called something like "Samsung Galaxy S3 Epic Touch 2" or "Epic Touch 2" or something like that.

Samsung should be sued for flooding the market with umpteen Galaxy phones. Apart from SG S II, SG Note and SG S III rest of all the Galaxy phones are crap.
