Masters' Marks II: The Green Jacket


It is Masters time again. See my post from last year if you think that this has something to do with graduate degrees.

Last year, I listed a number of marks of the Masters Tournament, including the Green Jacket. Hard core trademark types will be interested to learn that last December, Augusta National, Inc. filed two applications to register GREEN JACKET as a trademark in connection with a variety of goods and services. One application covers "entertainment services, namely, a championship presentation ceremony at the conclusion of a sporting event" in Class 41. The other application covers goods and services in five other classes, including things like games, clothing, and broadcasting and hospitality services. Interestingly, it does not appear that Augusta National has applied to register a green sports coat as a non-traditional trademark for any of these goods or services.

Please see full article below for more information.
