Apple wins 2 Design Patents in Hong Kong relating to Apple Watch & new trademarks including an Apple Music Logo with Chinese Characters

Today Apple was granted two design patents relating to Apple Watch in Hong Kong, specifically for Watch Band packaging. Apple is also on record in Hong Kong for filing 2 new trademarks with one specifically covering "Apple Music" that contains Chinese characters.

Unlike "patent applications" that provide the public with an abstract, summary and details of an invention, design patents published around the world are limited to only providing the public with design patent figures. No additional specifics of the design are made available.

Today the Hong Kong's Patent Office published two granted design patents for Apple Watch band packaging. The first is for band packaging relating to Apple Watch Ultra under number 2321162.4M002.

Lastly, Apple filed for two trademarks in Hong Kong this week. The first trademark application #306230114 is for Apple Music, which I believe includes Chinese Characters. The Apple Music logo trademark was filed under International Classes 9 and 42. While the coverage is quite elaborate, class 09 basically covers Apple devices including Apple TV plus  music files and multimedia content; downloadable musical sound recordings; downloadable computer software for accessing a searchable database of music and lyrics; downloadable computer software feature for vocal enhancement and lyric differentiation for self-guided interactive entertainment purposes. Apple's class 42 basically covers Providing non-downloadable software; software as a service (SaaS); platform as a service (PaaS); infrastructure as a service (IaaS); application service provider (ASP); providing non-down.

Patently Apple covered the U.S. trademark filing for this in April. Our report's cover graphic illustrated the soccer players having the figurative "Apple TV" logo on their sleeves. This is one of the applications covered by Apple's trademark filings.
