    Hi all,

    I never thought this lawsuit of Apple's has any merit, I now think Apple doesn't either. It's just a delaying tactic. Please use the link to reach the entire article.

    Print Story: Apple may have tough road in Amazon lawsuit - Yahoo! News

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) Apple Inc may face hurdles in stopping online retailer Amazon.com Inc from using Apple's App Store name through a trademark lawsuit, a U.S. judge indicated at a hearing on Wednesday.

    Apple, the maker of best-selling iPhones and iPad tablets, filed a lawsuit saying that Amazon has improperly used Apple's App Store name to solicit software developers throughout the United States.

    At the hearing in an Oakland federal court on Wednesday, District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said she would reread some of the supporting papers in the case, according to an individual who was at the hearing.

    However, Hamilton said Apple had a "stumbling block" in proving that anyone would confuse Apple's App Store for Amazon's Appstore for Android, the individual said.

    Apple Will Probably Lose Bid to Block Amazon From Using the Term 'Appstore'

    Apple Will Probably Lose Bid to Block Amazon From Using the Term 'Appstore' | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

    Apple will likely lose its legal campaign to block Amazon from using the term "Appstore," according to the federal judge handling the case.

    In March, Apple sued Amazon for trademark infringement over its Amazon Appstore, arguing that Apple has the exclusive rights to the phrase because of its iTunes App Store. Bloomberg reports that U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said she'll "probably" deny Apple's bid for exclusivity over the phrase after a hearing today in Oakland, CA because Apple has been unable to demonstrate that Amazon's use of the term is confusing.

    Apple's inability to show "real evidence of actual confusion" among users is a "stumbling block for Apple," she said. "I'm troubled by the showing that you've made so far, but that's where you're likely not to prevail at this early juncture."
