API's Lunchbox Gets Trademarked
API's lunchbox has been awarded trademark status by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Granted July 13, the registration recognizes API as the creator of the format and lets the company more effectively market the lunchbox frame.
“This helps verify to our friends in the audio community that API is and always has been the creator of the lunchbox and the 500 series format,” said Larry Droppa, API president. “If you say ‘lunchbox,’ it means the API lunchbox."
The official trademark registration symbol provides API with both product identity and protection when the lunchbox is mentioned in print or online.
