Apple officially trademarked its store design last week, an endeavor the company has been pursuing since May 2010.
After being rejected twice by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which claimed the store design was not “inherently distinctive,” Apple submitted additional materials and drawings, and gained the trademark on its mall-centric, rectangular store layouts.
