    Apple's Request for Injunction to Restrict Amazon's Use of "Appstore" is Denied


    There has been so much drama regarding the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit, it was easy to forget that Apple also sued Amazon for the use of the word "Appstore" in their title, Amazon Appstore. It looks like the first round of legal fighting turned out in Amazon's favor, for now. Although it was of little surprise that the judge ruled this way, Apple's request for injunction to stop the use of the word "Appstore" was denied. The standard of proof for enforcing this type of injunction is set necessarily high. The trademark infringement must be so obvious that there would generally be no argument about consumers' likely confusion. The judge in this case felt that Apple did not meet this burden of proof. The next part of the legal battle will be going to trial, and the date for that is set for October 2012.

    Wow.... that's a long way off!

    And by then, who knows if Amazon will have a solid enough following that there's no chance Apple will have a stem, er, leg to stand on.
