The Supertag Trademark

Trademarks are granted by the regulatory authorities in the different countries in the world. There is no such device as a world trademark.

With regard to the electronic scanning system publisized in January 1994 in South Africa, the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research were granted the trademark SUPERTAG in South Africa in December 1995.

However SUPERTAG as a trademark for a different product has in the USA been granted to a major electronic company operating from Fort Lauderdale.

The original patents describing the electronic scanning RFID system originally cited the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research as the assignee.
