Apple suffers blow in Amazon 'App Store' complaint

Apple suffers blow in Amazon 'App Store' complaint

January 4, 2013 | By Mike Rose




Apple has suffered a blow in its complaint against Amazon's use of the term "app store," as a judge has dismissed the claim that Amazon's use of the term is false advertising.

The iOS company originally filed the complaint in 2011, stating that Amazon's Android "Appstore" infringes on Apple's trademark, and provides unfair competition for the company.

A U.S. District Judge has now stated that Amazon's own Appstore does not possess the characteristics or qualities of Apple's own online store, and therefore it is unlikely that consumers will confuse the two, reports Bloomberg.

Other parts of the Apple complaint, including the alleged trademark infringement, are still scheduled for trial in August -- although a judge presiding over the case has previously said that Apple will probably lose.
