Apple Sues Amazon over "App Store" Trademark

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-0...trademark.html
Quote:
Apple, in a complaint filed March 18 in California, accused Amazon.com of trademark infringement and unfair competition and asked for a court order to prevent the company from using the “App Store” name, as well as for unspecified damages.
Still not sure how Apple even managed to trademark "App Store". Neither is Microsoft, or this guy:

I do hope for them, they didn't call it "App(le) Store" ...! The'd have to spend the eternity of their forfeit souls sipping molten iPads through a drinking straw!

Apple won't win as Apple does not own "app store".

Apple doesnt even own the Trademark, how would they possibly prevail? How can the suit even get a hearing?

As did I. The first one doesn't say that. The second is an opinion piece from a guy touting for business.

99% of the time, the side with the most expensive lawyers owns whatever they want to claim they own.

The system is broken that way.

Having just read the article, Apple applied for Trademark and it was approved but this is now being opposed by another bastion of free speech - Microsoft... at the moment then Apple do have it trademarked until a court ruling on Microsoft's enlightened opposition... until that time (and after if they win) Apple are perfectly entitled to claim and defend the trademark... damn, I really should have become a lawyer, there're rich pickings here but my parents were married...

Didn't Steve Jobs himself use the generic term "app store" when talking about Google's App Market? That should kill the lawsuit right there, shouldn't it?
