After facing many issues with Google Glass, Google encountered another hurdle in releasing the innovative head wear, this time its from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The internet giant has already made attempts to convince the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, but the officials there seems not to be able to get it done. Google provided a 1,928 page letter arguing its case, out of which most of the pages were only about the Google Glass.
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office gave out the reason that there are other patents having a “Glass” in their names, and would create a confusion to the customers. The 1,928 page letter provided had about 1900 pages only explaining the Google Glass, which despite of its specific formatting failed to be a descriptive for the officials.
The journal stated, “Trademark attorneys for Google, Anne Peck and Katie Krajeck from Cooley LLP, wrote back to the trademark office examiner two weeks ago with a 1,928-page letter in defense of the application. (About 1,900 pages of the letter are just clips of articles about Google Glass.) The attorneys disputed that Google’s proposed trademark would confuse consumers, especially given how much media and policy attention the Glass device has received in the last couple of years.”
Even though it has received much of attention and you can even find people wearing it, Google Glass is a head wearable running Android. The device houses a dual core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz with 1GB of RAM. For now the company has not made it publicly available instead it invites people across the world to be a part of Google Glass Explorer Edition. The current version of Google Glass has been priced at $1500, and we believe when the Glass will be launched for public, it is expected to have a price tag around $300 or $400. But for now, we don’t see if the Glass will be available to purchase in the coming few months.
