As we all know, the Colorado Rockies had a pretty good run at the end of the season and during the playoffs to make it to this year’s World Series. As reported by the Orlando Sentinel (link below, views therein not my own), and recognizing that “Rockies” and “October” share a similar sound, the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club, Ltd., recently filed four U.S. trademark applications for ROCKTOBER. The four applications (U.S. Trademark Application Nos. 77296639 (IC 025), 77296649 (IC 016), 77296661 (IC 028), and 77296664 (IC 041)) cover a broad range of items, including clothing (caps, hats, visors, knitted headwear, headbands, bandannas, shirts, T-shirts, tank tops, blouses, sweaters, etc.), paper goods (trading cards, posters, stickers, decals, temporary tattoos, bumper stickers, score books, scorecards, printed baseball game programs, magazines, books, etc.), toys (stuffed toys, plush toys, bean bag toys, soft sculpture foam toys, foam novelty items, namely, foam fingers, puppets; balloons, checker sets, chess sets, dominoes, cribbage game, board games, etc.), and entertainment services (including baseball games, competitions, tournaments and exhibitions rendered live and through broadcast media including television, radio, satellite, wireless, audio and video media, telephone, fiber optics, wireless fidelity and other electronic media and via a global computer network or a commercial on-line service, etc.). The Colorado Rockies currently use the mark ROCKTOBER on the team’s official website (link below), recognizing the team as the “2007 National League Champs.” It is noted that all four ROCKTOBER applications were filed in October, 2007.
