Posted December 16, 2018 07:59:07 Aaup, the manufacturer of the popular Aaupac brand of headphones, is trying to trademark the name of its products in the U.S. and internationally, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.
Aaupa is attempting to register the trademark in several countries, including the United Kingdom, China, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Canada and France, the report said.
A few of those countries are listed in the trademark filing: Japan, South Africa, the United States, Germany, Spain, France, Switzerland and Australia.
According to the Journal, the company wants to register its brand in the United Nations, and to use the trademark on its products.
Aucao is the maker of the Aauptron headphones, which were designed and marketed by Aaupan.
It’s the only brand Aaupen has filed for a trademark in the last decade.
A new wave of trademark infringement cases against Aaupeas products has hit the spotlight recently, as well as the trademark office’s scrutiny of other brands, including Apple’s iPhone, Samsung’s Galaxy phones and Microsoft’s Xbox.
A company spokeswoman told The Journal that Aaupas trademark application for the U and F suffixes is “not a response to any current trademark litigation” and that the company “would prefer to take advantage of the current uncertainty and the fact that there are no pending litigation claims to continue to develop products.”
