The US Air Force has filed a metaverse trademark application called SPACEVERSE that enables simulated extended-reality training, testing, and operations environments.
The metaverse trademark attorney Michael Kondoudis describes the platform as a digital metaverse converging terrestrial and space physical and digital realities.
The number of the metaverse and NFT-centered trademark filings with the USPTO jumped 421 times in 2021 compared to only three filed in 2020.
Financial services company Mastercard recently filed fifteen trademark applications to have its name, logo, and slogan registered as trademarks.
Meta is another big brand that has filed multiple of its trademarks with the agency in the immersive space. Others are Chevron, KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut.
Metaverse is a virtual or extended reality experience where users can interact, work, play or train their capabilities.
