USPTO withdraws refusal of iPad mini trademark

The US Patent and Trademark Office has withdrawn its recent refusal to Apple’s trademark application for the term “iPad mini.” A suggested disclaimer within the USPTO’s new office action now notes “mini” cannot be claimed as an exclusive Apple term, and can only be used in conjunction with iPad.

If, for some reason, Apple refuses to submit the disclaimer in its trademark application, the trademark could still be denied.
