Google’s ‘LOON’ enters Australian trade mark register

loon googleGoogle has had its Australian trade mark application for the term ‘LOON’ accepted, and it officially entered the register three weeks ago.

The trade mark – TM number 1535528 – was first lodged back in January, and filed under ‘telecommunications services’ in Class 38.

It appears to have been lodged as a priority application, after being accepted only a fortnight after first filing.

Google has a similar US trade mark application in January, along with an additional logo (pictured). The US trade mark is not yet accepted though, with a response due in October.

The logo is similar to one displayed at loon.com.au, which is owned by Aaron Loon, who claims to be a Google employee on his Google+ page.

™Watch has contacted Aaron Loon and is awaiting a response.
