new official gtaiv logo

I'm not sure, the fact that it's trademarked indicates that it's for real. Xbox.com should be taken as a pretty reliable source.

 

Edit: I'm going to check out the US gov patents site... I'll post back on this if I find anything.

This isn't an official logo.

This is xbox.com's moderation of Rockstar's "IV" logo.

The trademark accounts after "grand theft auto" not before.

You don't trademark logos.

Trademark logos are those logos that distinctly represent a company’s intellectual property.

Logos are generally trademarked, in the sense that they cannot be used by anyone else.

You patent tangible goods and objects, you trademark intellectual property like Kidnap said. I checked all of Take-Two's trademarks and there is nothing related to IV only "Grand Theft Auto" twice separately for different fuctions and all of the 3D GTA's except LCS and of course GTA: Tokyo and Bogota, Bully, CIV IV, MANHUNT etc all of which we all know. So no there is no GTA IV trademark yet, its not official.

 

Edit: Software is classed as intelectual property under most circumstances.

Of course, you don't have to list all your trademarks. The only real trademark search you can do is for registered trademarks. They would be marked with a ® instead of TM.

Its TM on Xbox.com so that would imply it had been registered, all registered trademarks have to be listed and accesible by the public so there can be no cause for plagiarism which could stand up in court.

A you have to defend for yourself if someone tries to infrenge, a ® is registered so it defends itself in a way. It costs a bit of money to get and maintain a ® so a lot of trademarks stay un-registered. (Check Microsoft...the Microsoft and Windows names are ® but the stylized window logo is only .) Also, a trademark has to be used on a product for a certain amount of time before it can be registerd.

 

FWI: Not trying to flame or anything...just putting the info out there. I have 2 registered trademarks (®) and numerous regular trademarks () that no one would even want to take anyway.
