‘There’s an App for That’ is Now an Apple Trademark

Posted by at 5:35 pm on October 11, 2010

Apple has been awarded a US trademark for the phrase “There’s an app for that.”       Apple filed for the trademark  in December 2009 with  the USPTO.    The filing claims commercial use dating back to January 26th of that year. The slogan is core to Apple’s efforts to promote the App Store and the iPhone, and has become a common staple of pop culture, often parodied.

While it is noew a trademark, the slogan should still be fair game for parody by artists and the general public. Apple has generally steered away from trademarking slogans, although it does own some. Most notable may be “think different,” which originally surfaced in marketing in 1997.
