Judge Not At All Impressed By Apple's Lawsuit Against Amazon Over 'App Store' Name
from the you're-going-to-lose dept
Even as Apple continues to threaten anyone else for using the phrase “app store” to describe an app store (sorry, Steve, it’s generic), the judge in the lawsuit between Apple and Amazon has made it clear that she’s not buying Apple’s claim here. She refused to issue an injunction blocking Amazon and said that Apple will “probably” lose the case itself — in large part because Apple failed to demonstrate any form of consumer confusion. The judge is still going to review some filings, but the chances of Apple winning here are remote, at best.
