Apple anger over Amazon “App Store” name – more lawsuits!

Apple has kicked off yet another bitter lawsuit after Amazon unveiled its own Android “App Store” yesterday.

Apple - seeing red!

As crazy as it sounds, Apple is very angry with anybody using the words “App Store” to describe their services, even when that’s what’s being provided – a store for apps!

Already in a feud with Microsoft over use of the title, Apple finds any other company’s use of the title “misleading” to customers and a misrepresentation of “their” services.

Speaking of angry, this all seems to have stemmed from those annoying Angry Birds, after an advert for the popular mobile-based game was launched by the Amazon App Store (sorry – “store from which applications are purchased”) – much to the ire of Apple.
