Trademarks: Amazon Gets Personal While Samsung Lays Some Groundwork

Our trademark tracking ears perked up this past week when Amazon underwear and Samsung robots popped up on our trademark monitoring search radar! As you know, NameWarden’s powerful trademark monitoring system can watch USPTO applications for any search criteria you like.  We keep tabs on a few of the major tech players.  Here’s what caught our attention.

Amazon Gets Deeper Into Garments… Undergarments…

Looks like Amazon is expanding its product line to include undergarments. One mark, MAE was registered in the bra and panty category. The other, MXG was registered in the intimate apparel category.

The company has been expanding its wardrobe offerings quietly since 2016. They started with a line of 7 in-house fashion lines. In June of this year, they launched Amazon Wardrobe, a try before you buy shopping service and by August they had grown the in-house line to 50 labels. So that trend continues with underwear and loungewear.

Samsung Lays the Groundwork, Taking on Roomba

Samsung has been growing its line of appliances and Smart Home offerings – like the Samsung Family Hub Smart Refrigerator and the Chef Collection. These recent marks suggest they are laying the groundwork for a new home appliance. While all three registrations fall within the robotic vacuum and dish washing categories, these particular marks (Active Waterjet, Turbospray, and Powersoak) suggest a new dishwasher is on the horizon. Unless, of course, the robots also clean floors. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
