I was quoted last week by E Commerce Times in an article:
Judge Knocks Some Wind Out of Apple’s App Store Sails
While the decision was a procedural one dismissing Apple’s claim of false advertising, I said in part that
“Apple’s loss of this motion may foreshadow a decision on the trademark claims,” Pelton added, “as the court hinted that ‘app store’ is a common phrase and may not be recognized by consumers as solely identifying Apple’s online marketplace for mobile software applications.”
What do you think of Apple’s efforts to register the “App Store” name? Will it hold up in court?
