Apple now owns the iPad trademark. The trademark (Serial No. 76497338) was filed by Fujitsu in March of 2003 for their iPad wireless handheld computing device used by retailers. Records at the U.S. Patent and Trademark office show that the trademark was assigned to Apple on March 17.
There has been much speculation over the last few months about the iPad trademark. Apple initiated opposition proceedings challenging the validity of the mark in September last year. However, the proceedings never developed into anything substantive and Apple simply filed three requests for extensions of time, presumably while they were in talks with Fujitsu.
The assignment is public record and can be purchased from the USPTO by requesting Reel/Frame: 4168/0447.
