The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has approved a new trademarked logo designed to denote areas where use of cellular telephones is restricted. The logo, signs and stickers are available from the company's website.
"It is a simple but clear indicator to the public to refrain from using cell phones in places where their use would be inappropriate or potentially dangerous," said Sandy Middleton Marshall, designer of the trademarked logo. "Displaying the logo helps businesses and institutions gently remind patrons not to use their cellular phones in designated areas. They know immediately to turn off their phones while in that particular venue."
In addition to product information and sales, the No Cell Phone Zone website provides potential uses for the trademarked logo. Marshall has already received interest from hospitals, conference centers, libraries, museums, theaters, funeral homes, auto dealers and restaurants that could benefit from its use.
One thing to note is that the website has no mobile phone ringing, but a very loud song...
