"Today, Microsoft was granted the “Zune” trademark filed on August 16, 2006. As you would expect, the Zune trademark includes uses for a multimedia player and entertainment device, but did you also know, the Zune trademark also covers telecommunication and internet services?... Just when you thought this might be a serious indication of the Zune’s future strategies, Microsoft has also included a bunch of silly toy-related products for the Zune name. Zune roller skates? Zune golf carry bags?"
Microsoft was finally granted its Zune trademark. Sure enough, Microsoft was sure to get all their ducks in a row (pun intended) and have trademarked the Zune name in the areas of cellular phone services as well as other Internet and network functions. This paves the way for some of the future uses of Zune that we know are coming, such as a Zune phone. Unfortunately for you aspiring entrepreneurs out there, Microsoft has also blocked you from jumping on the Zune bandwagon by trade marking just about every use of the Zune you can think of. So much for my Zune Shaving Kit!
