Apple sued small Polish company (online grocery) for using domain name a.pl and logo containing name of that domain.

Apple claims that it is unauthorised use of their own brand name.


It could be funny, if it was not a truth


___________

Apple logo



a.pl logo

off course, but as it is "Polish case" - I have only article in Polish
translation of headline:
Apple (TEN Apple) domaga się unieważnienia znaku towarowego A.pl (delikatesów internetowych). A.pl jest własnością firmy Internet S.A.
Apple (THIS Apple) demands revocation (right to use) of registered trademark A.pl (online grocery). A.pl is owned by company "Internet S.A."

I for one hope the case gets rejected and costs are awarded to the grocery shopping. I'm no trademark lawyer but I cannot see anything close to the apple logo or any other infringement. I suspect that Apple Inc.'s lawyers are a bunch of Ar$eholes of the first order. This case should never have got to court (if it has) or even to the letter writing stage.

God (if there is one) save our souls from such stupidity by allegedly intelligent business people and legal minds.

Now there is a lot of jokes about Apple suing everyone... but also showing who shoud sue Apple... for example Braun company for coppying their calculator ;)

just type "braun calculator and apple" in Your browser




or see for example an article: 1960s Braun products holds the secrets of Apple's future

some pictures from this article - below

on the LEFT - Braun                     on the right - Apple

I wish I could market my Steve Jobs lunchboxes to all the Apple zombies out there but I'm
sure I'd be sued.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
