SECTION I - CLASS DEFINITION

This is the generic class for receptacles which are used to carry money, credit cards, or items of identification on the person. This is the residual class for protective covers for articles.

A protective cover for this class is (a) made of flaccid material, (b) supported by the article it covers, (c) configured to cover a specific article, and (d) removed before the article is used.

A protective cover may be secured and carried by an article while the article is being transported, but does not function to carry or support the article, as would an article carrier or receptacle. Rather, it functions to protect the covered article from its external environment, or to protect the environment from the article. See Lines with Other Classes, below, for similar structures made of flaccid material.

Most protective covers are classified in the same class as the article to be covered. (See Subclass References to This Class, below.)

SECTION II - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS

See the line notes to Class 52, Static Structures (e.g., Buildings); Class 135, Tent, Canopy, Umbrella, or Cane; Class 229, Envelopes, Wrappers, and Paperboard Boxes; Class 383, Flexible Bags; and Class 428, Stock Material or Miscellaneous Articles for structures made of flaccid material that are similar to the articles of this class.

The purses, handbags and wallets of this class (150) are distinguished from the suitcases and briefcases of Class 190 by both (a) the type of personal items they normally carry (e.g., money, credit cards, identification items versus clothes, books, papers) and (b) their proximity to the person (e.g., kept on or near the person versus left in the hotel or office room).

Class 206, Special Receptacle or Package, is the residual class for a packet, compact or case carried on the person of a user (e.g., a pocket carried receptacle). Class 206 is also the residual class for a receptacle which includes claimed specific retainer structure for contents. Class 206 further provides for claimed disclosure of contents in a receptacle.

Class 383, Flexible Bags, is the residual class for a receptacle of general utility made of flaccid or flexible material.

An alphabetical index for Flaccid Protective Covers (by article to be covered) is shown below. For numerical references to specific subject matter, see References to Other Classes, below. Additionally, see Subclass References to the Current Class, below.
