    Apple is Suing Amazon for Trademark Infringement Over "Appstore"


    Apple isn't thrilled about Amazon using the word "Appstore" in their app store. Apple was granted a trademark for "App Store", and apparently to them, the differences are too close and constitute infringement. The drama gets even more complicated by the fact that Microsoft has challenged Apple's registration of the term "App Store" entirely, and is taking it before an appeals board. None of the companies involved have issued any comments on the matter.

    Hmmm... I wonder if I could trademark the phrase, "That's cheesy."

    Just. Silliness.

    I think they charge more for their stuff just to cover retainer fees for their lawyers.

    "Don't like competition?" Just sue them!

    ... that goes for everyone, I'm not singling any one company out with that statement.

    Well the company I work for couldn't compete so we filed bankruptcy twice in 2 years.

    This is such a joke. I don't understand how they were able to trademark such a general name in the first place. Apple has become too damn power hungry
