While Americans and Canadians were enjoying Black Friday, Apple legal was busy filing a series of trademark applications to protect Apple's Sidecar, Pencilkit and others.
The Hong Kong Patent and Trademark acknowledged Apple's trademark application 305119407 for "Sidecar."
Apple filed the "Sidecar" trademark under International Class 09 covering computers and a ridiculous list covering everything under the sun in hardware like smart glasses, earphones, headset, televisions and more. The lists also included foolish items such as whistle alarms, dog whistles, latches for doors, garage door openers and so forth that have nothing to do with "Sidecar."
The trademark is represented as simple text and no icon. For those not familiar with Sidecar, see Apple's PDF explaining it all.

PencilKit is for developers. It makes it easy for developers to incorporate hand-drawn content into their iOS or macOS apps quickly. PencilKit provides a drawing environment for their OS app that takes input from Apple Pencil, or the user's finger, and turns it into high quality images they display in either iOS or macOS. The environment comes with tools for creating, erasing, and selecting lines.
