Apple trademarks design of its stores

The company won U.S. trademark protection for features such as its clear glass storefront and signature tables

Apparently not satisfied with its dominion over round-cornered rectangles, Apple Inc. has now trademarked the design of its stores.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the tech giant’s 2010 request for trademarks on design elements such as “a clear glass storefront surrounded by a paneled façade” and an “oblong table with stools … set below video screens flush mounted on the back wall.”
