Game of Thrones, Season 7, premieres tonight in Australia. To celebrate, innofy takes a look at the top 5 most surprising classes of goods or service HBO has registered (or has applied to register) Game of Thrones related marks in. (As followers of our site will recall, when registering a trade mark in Australia, applicants need to specify the goods and/or services for which that mark is used, or is intended to be used.)
1. KHALEESI for cleaning products
Yup, that’s right – trade mark 1695101, “KHALEESI” is registered in two classes (21 and 25) and specifies “articles for cleaning purposes” in class 21.
2. KHALEESI for laundry bleach
“KHALEESI” makes another top 5 appearance in the form of trade mark 1514894 which is registered in class 3 – including “bleaching preparations and other substances for laundry use”.
3. GAME OF THRONES for wine
“GAME OF THRONES” in trade mark application 1855237 simply recites class 33 and “wines”. Given the extensive reference in Game of Thrones to wine, this is perhaps not all that surprising – perhaps the next applications will be to “Arryn” for Riesling, “Westerlands” for Cabernet…
4. WINTER IS COMING for kitchen utensils
Trade mark “WINTER IS COMING”, 1697237, is registered in respect of two classes (21 and 25) including class 21 specifying “household or kitchen utensils and containers”.
5. GAME OF THRONES for guitars
Trade mark application 1852035, “GAME OF THRONES” refers to class 15 and musical instruments including “guitars”.
