Patently Apple reports Apple has filed for the ‘iPod touch loop’ trademark with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office on December 10th, 2012. Apple’s original trademark filing for this term took place in Jamaica in September, when the new iPod touch was first launched.
Apple filed their trademark in Toronto, Canada under “wares” which specifically covers the following: wristbands and lanyards adapted or shaped to attach to hand held computers, personal digital assistants, handheld electronic digital devices, audio players, digital audio recorders, digital video recorders and players, and wireless communication devices for voice, data or image transmission.”
The iPod touch loop comes with every new iPod touch and acts as a wrist strap to keep the device secure when you’re holding it. Apple has previously filed trademarks for Passbook and Photo Stream in Canada.
