Now That Apple Has A Trademark On 'There's An App For That,' Will It Sue Sesame Street?

You may recall that, last year, Apple got quite upset at Verizon Wireless for running commercials that parodied Apple’s “there’s an app for that” tagline, with “there’s a map for that,” which tried to highlight the better coverage found on Verizon Wireless’ network. Well, last month, Apple was officially awarded the trademark for “there’s an app for that,” so now we can wait to see who Steve Jobs decides to sue.
Personally, I think he should go after Sesame Street. CNET points out that Sesame Street just did a video mocking the “there’s an app for that,” tagline which they used in a song about the “iPogo” device. Considering Apple’s aggressive nature when it comes to trademark issues, you can see how it might not be happy with the iPogo/There’s an App for That sketch, but even Steve Jobs wouldn’t stoop to suing Big Bird, would he? Or, maybe there’s an app for that kind of lawsuit, too…
