Apple Applies For Trademark on Beatles Logo

Industry News

Apple has put into motion the final steps towards ownership of the Beatles' Granny Smith logo that they won from the Beatles' record label in 2007.


Patently Apple reported that Apple has filed for two trademark applications with the European Trademarks Office, "under 14 International Classifications covering such matters as computer hardware, online social networking services, mobile phones, musical instruments, games, clothing/headgear, advertising, education and broadcasting."

The two logos (which are in fact, quite different) show one featuring a side-on shot of a Granny Smith apple and the other a cross-section of a Granny Smith apple. These are already owned by Apple under the terms of the 2007 deal, though their continued use by Apple Corps is licensed.
