Toronto Brewery claims to own YYZ and other airport codes across canada

Although not AC specific, it is Canadian so where else would i put this?

It's probably in or going to be in the news but here it is on a small news website: Daily Hive

"According to the Canadian Trademarks Database, In addition to YYZ, the company has also trademarked “The 6,” airport codes for Calgary (YYC) and Montreal (YUL), along with area codes including 416, 905, 604, 403, and 514."

The thread title and article title are very over the top dramatic. The trademark is specific for "...use in association with... alcoholic, brewery, beverages, namely beer...". There's no real story here.

Also calling Amsterdam one of the "big guys" is a bit of an exaggeration. Its not like it was Molson Coors or AB InBev.

Why would you want to trademark 905? To attract the bridge&tunnel crowd?

And my bicycle is called the YUL. Trademark registrations are always for specific goods/services, not for everything. See Apple Computers vs. Apple Records vs. Apple Autoglass vs trademarke-ineligible generic term for certain fruit.

Yes, but Apple Computers tried to prevent Apple Records from joining the digital age, no?
