NetJets is a private aviation company that offers a number of services including fractional ownership of jet aircraft, jet lease management and jet charter services.  In the 1990s, NetJets developed its own proprietary software called “IntelliJet” as an operational management tool.  NetJets began highlighting features of the IntelliJet software in its public promotions for the purpose of distinguishing its core services from the competition.  Originally the software was only used internally by NetJets employees and IT staff, but NetJets eventually expanded access to the software, allowing customers to use the tool to make flight reservations and the like.  In 1996, the company obtained a trademark registration for its INTELLIJET mark covering the goods of “computer software for managing aircraft leasing and sales.”
