Apple has dropped a trademark lawsuit filed against Amazon over its use of the term "Appstore" for its Android application storefront. Apple originally contended that Amazon's Appstore infringed on its own App Store trademark. The lawsuit was filed in March 2011, but both sides have agreed to drop the case altogether. Of today's resolution, Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said, "customers know where they can purchase their favorite apps."

Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said, "customers know where they can purchase their favorite apps."

They sure do. Also - I'm pretty sure they also knew before. And they know right now. And they'll know tomorrow.

The two companies agreed to drop the lawsuit together? I don't believe that for a second.
I actually agree wholeheartedly with Huguet. Customer DO know where they can buy their favorite apps...
The GooglePlay Store. Smile

Ah.. Couldn't resist the opportunity.

Adding a noun in front of "store"! Brilliant!

Is any level of sarcasm really enough for this? I invented the book store! I invented the shoe store! Definitely don't open a rectangle store.

It all falls flat, really. Apple is its own worst parody.
sigh. I bet they just have a team of people scouring the mobile world looking for opportunities to sue. This is one of those lawsuits that just baffles me. Why? -.- smh
