Before two weeks ago, there was never a trademark filing in the USPTO records featuring the words POLAR and VORTEX.  In fact, on January 10th, I tweeted:

Now, just 10 days later, there are five pending applications! Several are for clothing items, meaning their may be some ‘priority’ disputes as these applications wind their way through the registration process. Click each mark for USPTO records:

  • POLAR VORTEX – for ‘Clothing; footwear; headwear’
  • POLAR VORTEX – for ‘Beanies; Coats; Gloves; Hats; Hooded sweatshirts; Jackets; Outdoor gloves; Outer jackets; Shirts; Sweat shirts; Sweatshirts; T-shirts’
  • POLAR VORTEX – for ‘fireworks’
  • Polar Vortex – for ‘Athletic apparel, namely, shirts, pants, jackets, footwear, hats and caps, athletic uniforms; Athletic footwear; Athletic footwear for men and women; Footwear; Headgear, namely, hats, caps, watch caps, headwraps’

For more about polar vortexes, see Wikipedia entry here.
