On July 12th, Haiku received from the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) the good news that "Haiku" is now a registered trademark. This is very good news because it allows Haiku Inc. to better protect its work (Haiku itself of course). So now, Haiku Inc has trademarks for both "Haiku" (in operating systems) and the Haiku logo.
Also, and as mentioned over at Haiku's website, this "strengthens everyone's ability to associate "Haiku" with the computer operating system that the Haiku Project creates". Good news indeed, just another proof of the great work being done by Haiku Inc. (and those involved).
