Apple Sues Amazon Over App Store Trademark

Online retailer’s Android marketplace named Amazon Appstore, infringing Apple’s disputed trademark.

Apple has begun legal proceedings against Amazon, alleging the online retail giant is in violation of the App Store trademark.

Amazon’s Android software marketplace, Amazon Appstore, is to officially launch later this month. Yet last Friday Apple filed a complaint at a northern California federal court, accusing Amazon of trademark infringement and unfair competition, requesting a judge’s order to prevent Amazon using the name and award Apple unspecified damages.
