After being ordered to pay Apple money, he files two Apple-related trademark applications in the U.S.
I’ll say this about Michael Gleissner: he’s not afraid to pick fights with deep-pocketed companies.
Just days after being ordered to pay Apple £38,085 for filing trademark revocation proceedings with an ulterior purpose, firms that list Gleissner as Director filed trademark applications in the U.S. for both Apple and iPod.
Meanwhile, his attorneys are up to their usual trademarking activities.
On the same day as filing the Apple and iPod trademarks, they filed a trademark application for Clear.com. The domain name was owned by Wimax company Clearwire which was acquired by Sprint. Sprint still owns the domain name and forwards it to Sprint.com.
They also filed an application for Brandster.com, which appears to not be connected to Gleissner’s firms. I have reached out to the owner of Brandster.com to confirm.
