Breaking: General Motors Files Trademark Applications For ‘Krypton’ And ‘Camaro Krypton’54
General Motors has filed applications to register “Krypton” and “Camaro Krypton” as a trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), GM Authority was first to discover.
The automaker’s May 5th, 2015 applications specify that the marks will be used in association with motor land vehicles. Specifically, Krypton is assigned for “Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks and vans” while Camaro Krypton is for a more specific “motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles.”
|TRADEMARK||SERIAL NUMBER||FILING DATE|
|KRYPTON||86619619||MAY 5, 2015|
|CAMARO KRYPTON||86619597||MAY 5, 2015|
To note, Krypton is defined as:
The chemical element of atomic number 36. A member of the noble gas series, krypton is obtained by the distillation of liquid air and is used in some kinds of electric light.
In addition, we should also note that Krypton is the home planet of Superman. Meanwhile, Batman always kept Kryptonite in his utility belt in case Superman tried to pull something. As such, a “Camaro Krypton” could have something to do with the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.
General Motors’ Chevrolet brand is set to reveal the all-new, sixth-generation 2016 Camaro at a special event at Belle Isle later this week on Saturday, May 16th, 2015. As such, we could see the Krypton and Camaro Krypton names used on the all-new 2016 Camaro.

I would guess this will be a special trim edition with a special paint that will share the same name. GM has done this with the past Camaro and even the trucks.
Sounds like a special edition to tie in with the new Batman vs Superman movie next year. Can a Gotham edition be too far behind.
I hope not. I felt the “Transformers” tie really diluted the 5th gen Camaro.
Transformers helped make the Camaro and other GM products highly successful. Go to any car show and you will see kids taking their pictures with the bumble bee cars. The movie will help the Camaro especially for generations to come.
yes indeed … we’ve got yellow Camaros all over our house and none of us even watched Transformers. My 7 year old still talks about Transformers as does his mates at school.
Not even trying to be a Grammar Police, but this is really bad “The chemical element of atomic number 36. A member of the noble gas series, krypton is obtained by the distillation of liquid air and is used is some kids of electric light.”! 😉
Fixed! Now it should read properly.
Really, Transformers diluted the 5th gen Camaro??? Did you see the movie? It was a 2+ hour commercial that ended up selling a whole bunch of cars for GM. I applaud the marketing team as it was a brilliant move.
Tru dat. All of the good Transformers were GM vehicles. A Dodge charger police car that was an evil bastard of a transformer. Art imitates life.
Lol or how that corvette stingray sliced that r8 in half at the beginning of the 2nd movie.
How can anyone copyright the name of a chemical element? Might as well copyright “oxygen” or “calcium”, for goodness sake.
One hopes that the government entity that catalogues and keeps such records of copyright have the basic education to reject such an application for copyright of a name in common parlance in scientific circles. If so granted, would scientists using the word “krypton” in a scientific article anywhere where GM has such copyright have to petition GM to use the word? If so, it would be utterly ridiculous to any thinking person of reasonable education.
It’s a trademark for the word Krypton for use in automotive circles. It’s not an broad and over-arching trademark on the element in all applications outside of cars.
Consider the name mercury. It’s a name for the 80th element, a Roman god, an outboard motor company, a planet, a record company, a British telecomm firm, the stage surname of Farrokh Bulsara, AND a defunct brand of the Ford Motor Company.
No one of those mentioned has a trademark on the name ‘Mercury’ beyond their respected field. Same deal with krypton as it, and the word mercury and oxygen and calcium are all common words.
Besides, if an organization could trademark any and all of the elements for use in every field, they’d likely all be spoken for by now.
