The proof of Apple’s plans to go international with iBooks are becoming increasingly evident, as the Cupertino company has filed for trademarks on iBooks and iBook Store/iBookStore in Canada. The trademark was uncovered by Patently Apple, and is extremely broad. Not just limited to text based media, it also related to music, subscription services, and the possibility of selling content in meat-space.
We heard rumor of Apple’s international plans for iBooks yesterday, and this concretes that they’re planning to roll out worldwide sooner rather than later. It’s good to see that they’re not taking the iTunes Store model, and slowly opening it elsewhere over the course of a decade.
