USPTO Awareded Microsoft Trademarks for Retail Store Design ‘Trade Dress’

Microsoft Store “trade dress” trademark registration 4036534 has now been awarded.

It was only two years ago Gizmodo leaked a comprehensive design document with sketched plans for a Microsoft Store. A few months open, the real thing showed up in Arizona.

Now, 14 stores (open and planned) are scattered all around the US.

“Interestingly, Microsoft almost missed their re-approval application by a day having been refused its original application on the 15th of February 2011.

A response was required within 6 months to avoid abandoning the application. Like a high school student, the response was submitted a day before on the 14th of August. Turns out even lawyers procrastinate,” said.
