Sony Trademarks “Reader”

It’s nothing to get worked up over from what I can see.

Sony has been granted three trademarks on the word “reader,” all of which were granted for use with specific logos.

See the trademark filings after the break.

Note that these records have been reformatted for clarity in this blog post.
