As stated in the trademark application, the company intends to provide virtual goods such as clothing, footwear, sports equipment, automatic vending machines, magnets, beverages, refrigerators, bottle openers, and much more for use in online virtual worlds.
In addition to offering entertainment services, the company also plans on providing users with the chance to attend live concerts, sports competitions, or other entertainment events through a virtual environment.
The trademark application also stated the intention of the company of providing “retail and online retail services for software, electronic devices and footwear incorporating sensors that allow consumers to engage in virtual athletic competitions and individual and group fitness classes.”
