Trademark Class 28: Games and Sporting Goods

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 28 is opted to register a trademark for games and playthings, and gymnastic and sporting articles.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 28 includes games and playthings, gymnastic and sporting articles not included in other classes, decorations for Christmas trees, as well as amusement and game apparatus adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor, fishing tackle, equipment for various sports and games.
