A BundtTM Pan?

kaleokahu | Aug 23, 201110:09 PM     8

OK, so I'm at a garage sale last weekend. No copper, but there's this *really* heavy-gauge aluminum Bundt pan. Like 3mm thick all over. I'm looking at it, and it has cast on the outside "BUNDT* Pan", and below that, "*Trademark".

I'm wondering: Is the term (or pan) "Bundt" proprietary? Or is this a great example of how a trademark gets abused, or lost because it wasn't defended?

The manufacturer was also cast on the bottom: Northland Aluminum Products, Inc., Minneapolis Minn. USA"

Help me out here... Is there an *official* Bundt, or what?

Aloha,
Kaleo

PS If it helps, the pan was in the "Free" pile at the garage sale, and is now in my kitchen.
