Ripple, a large cryptocurrency company developing XRP-based products, continues to actively claim new trademark rights.

Last month, the company filed four trademark applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), according to publicly available data on the USPTO website.

Ripple’s latest trademark application was filed on August 19. The new brand, called “Ripple Impact”, aims to cover categories of charitable services, including fundraising and capital improvement.

On August 11, Ripple filed another series of three brand filings, including brands such as Ripple Impact, Ripple X and Ripplex. According to the deposit descriptions, all three brands relate to electronic payment services and fiat cash gifts:

“Trademark registration aims to cover the categories of electronic financial services, that is, cash services for receiving and paying transfers and gifts in fiat currencies and virtual currencies through a computer network and exchanging paper and virtual currencies over a computer network […]”

According to public data, all four trademarks were pending review by the USA office at the time of publication.

Earlier this year, Ripple also filed a number of trademark registrations for its flagship ODL product. According to public records, applications were accepted by the agency and assigned to the examiner.

Ripple’s trademark registrations with the United States Patent and Trademark Office also include a facility called “PayID”. Ripple filed two applications for this trademark in June 2020. The patent name was recently the subject of a lawsuit by a banking union in Australia. As Cointelegraph reported on August 25th, Ripple is now facing an intellectual property infringement lawsuit over a trademark use of the Australian Interbank Payments Network, also known as a “payment identifier”.
