Windows 7: Apple Sues Polish Grocery Store Over A.pl Name

Apple Sues Polish Grocery Store Over A.pl Name

You can't make this stuff up!

Quote:
A.pl, which advertises straight-to-your-door delivery, goes by the full name A.PL Internet SA. While ".pl" is actually Poland's country-wide domain, Apple is arguing a trademark issue, demanding that the Polish Patent Office cancel the site's trademark. The main allegations, according to Telepolis, are the likeness of characters, and "the use of Apple's reputation," the site said.

Haven't they got anything better to do?

They'll be suing supermarkets, grocers, and farmers the world over before long on the grounds of (or being in the chain of) selling apples.

they still have a lot of momentum, but it does seem like their losing their way.

I think it will be at least two years before it's obvious that Apple has a problem.

I'm actually thinking that RIM's Blackberry 10 system may start this, providing the rumors and hints that the multitasking ability will again redefine smartphones.

Backlash over the Lightning adaptor probably won't be good either, once everyone who hasn't clued in brings their iPhone 5 home and realizes it doesn't work with their expensive docks.

Apple should get out of the computer,phone business and start a legal firm.
