Apple has purchased portions of the Lightning trademark in Europe from Harley-Davidson, several sources have reported.
The trademark Apple purchased covers a variety of items, including motorcycle electrical parts and speedometers, audio and video equipment, vending machines, slot and pinball machines, Christmas tree ornaments, golf tees, cat toys, TVs and eyeglasses, according to CNNMoney. Apple’s new 30-pin adapter is named Lightning in the U.S.
Because Apple only purchased part of the trademark, Harley can still use it in the future on its bikes.
