First discovered by The Register, the filing was submitted to the European trademark body on Dec. 3, with Apple going through London law firm Edwards Wildman.
Apple is looking to protect the leaf portion of its apple mark, not the entirety of the logo. If the request is granted, the trademark will cover ten classes of products including computers, film streaming services, paper packaging, jewelry and educational material.
According to the filing, Apple also filed for similar rights in China, though it is unclear if that trademark was established.
