    App Store Battle Hit A Bump For Apple


    Apple has been fighting Amazon for the last month over their use of the term App Store, and the latest judge ruling isnít in their favor. U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton was quoted to say in a court document that Apple had not proven "a likelihood of confusion" with Amazon's Appstore for Android, but did side with Apple saying "App Store" isnít a generic term. The actual court date has been set for late next year, and so in that time Apple has time to get all the information and prove that App Store should be limited to their use because otherwise itíll confuse the consumers.
    The tech battles are heading up donít you say?

    Enough with the frivolous lawsuits already Apple. Nobody is going to confuse your app store with the Amazon Appstore!

    I understand Apple's thinking behind this, but you cannot download an app on your idevice through Amazon. Apple uses proprietary software for their devices so it is impossible to make a mistake.

    iOS is changing that, actually, but what Apple is suing over is simply using the name appstore. It's too similar to the App Store. Frankly I think that's like trying to copyright the phrase hot dog so only Hebrew National can sell those, forcing everyone else to sell frankfurters, but I'm not a greedy multi-national corporation.
