Apple acquires EU Lightning trademark from Harley

Apple has acquired rights to use the Lightning trademark in Europe in a recent partial transfer from Harley-Davidson, according to recent documents from The Trade Marks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union. The documents can be seen in a report from Patently Apple; the transfer occurred on Nov. 24. While specifics of the partial transfer are not provided, it likely allows both Apple and Harley-Davidson to use certain aspects of the Lightning trademark for their own non-conflicting products.
