Of course this isn’t the most seemingly obvious patent Apple has been awarded in recent years. The company has also been granted patents for an icon for music


Maybe the NY Times should do some research. MySpace actually has the patent for a music note icon.

Apple introduced the Music app to iOS last year with iOS 5, splitting music and videos into dedicated apps and killing off the iPod app that had been pre-installed on the iPhone since the original made its debut in 2007. The new icon features a music note — similar to that on the iTunes icon — emblazoned onto a fiery orange background.

Unfortunately for Apple, trademark judges feel the icon is too similar to a logo owned by Myspace, which also features a music note on an orange background. As you can see from the image above, they’re vastly different to anyone with remotely good vision. But judges feel that consumers may confuse the two.

ahh trade dress... I bet the patent says "a duple meter music note on orange background"... if that is how its described then apples one fits under the existing trademark and therefore is a void applicaiton
