Apple iTunes (Store) Trademark Evolution

This is interesting for what it has now added to the iTunes Store (see red). Then see the three prior filings abbreviated afterwards.

Each of these can be searched for at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office via their registration number using the TESS system (select Trademarks at left, then TESS in the drop-down list).

Note: The tabular records have been reformatted for improved readability.
