    Unsurprisingly, Patently Apple notes that Apple has filed for a trademark on the term "iCloud" in Europe, staking out its territory as it prepares to introduce its new cloud-based service next Monday at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
    In its application, Apple cites an application filed in Jamaica on December 7, 2010 for its priority date of registration.

    iCloud trademarks are currently registered in the United States and Europe to Xcerion, the company behind the earlier iCloud service that recently rebranded itself as CloudMe after Apple reportedly purchased the domain and perhaps other rights to the iCloud name.

    A new trademark application for iCloud also appeared in the United States last month, but the application appears to be unconnected to Apple itself and instead having been registered by Dane Baker of iOS development firm Villain, perhaps either as an attempt at squatting on the term given rumors of Apple's plans for a service by that name or simply to try to elicit a response from Apple confirming its interest in the name.

    With iApp developers like this, who needs, uh, enemies?

    That's one way to endear yourself to the mothership: give corporate attorneys more to do to work around…or over you.

    I don't need iCloud, I use Grooveshark :)
    What I DO need is a revamped notification system in iOS, please!

    Please get this up to par. New things are great, but still put some polish on the things you already have in existence!!

    Mental note, buy every domain name that starts with "i"...

    iCloud is an awful name. I hate 'i' stuff but iDisc was better.

    Ok.... so what about the rest of the world?

    +1 to buying loads of 'i' domains.
