Apple Gets Sued by iCloud Communications for Trademark Breaching
Nothing new here… just another lawsuit with Apple involved, as usual. The iCloud cloud storage service was barely announced and already there’s a legal problem with it. Arizona-based company iCloud Communications is claiming that it has the trademark for the iCloud name and wants Apple to cease using it.
iCloud Communications is a VoIP equipment firm and service provider, but it turns out that its documents also mention it as a cloud computing company. Their services are being provided since 2005, so that’s quite a while for Apple to get this aspect fixed. The court is required to destroy all of the Apple iCloud marketing gimmicks, damage payment and invalidation of the iCloud trademark. This is the one that Apple bought from Xcerion and it’s the only registered iCloud trademark till now.
I guess that the two companies will settle out of the court, as usual…
