It's a FRUIT. It doesn't look like the Apple Computer logo either. Only a MORON would confuse the two.

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/10/26/german-family-owned-cafe-battles-apple-over-logo-dispute/?test=faces

When is an apple with a cutout silhouette and a leaf on top just, well, an apple? A German family cafe and the American tech giant are trying to sort that out.

The Local Germany reported Wednesday that when Christin Romer opened her cafe in the west German city of Bonn last May she named it Apfelkind (apple baby) after a nearby apple orchard.

Then she commissioned a logo, which turned out to be a red apple with a cut-out silhouette of a child in a hat, and liked it so much she had it reprinted on cushions, chairs, cups and even a delivery bike.

If Apple doesn't think consumers can distinguish between the two logos then they should do better marketing.

There is more to this story I'd bet.
Apple is not stupid. They wouldn't get involved without a reason.
There is not enough info in that story to really know what the situation is.
If she has a business.. like computer based, or internet cafe, or whatever..there has to be a reason they would get involved, not just on a whim.
Apple would not send lawyers after her if she was just a little cafe selling cookies and cake.
The only thing she mentions is wanting to sell franchises and my guess is..it has something to do with that.
Maybe she's selling franchises for internet cafe's all over europe with her apple logo. In a franchise..logo's mean alot. Who knows? That article doesn't give any real information.

But Apple haters go ahead....

So you can't own a computer cafe and have a picture of an apple on it? Do I have to pay apple to go buy and eat an apple now too?

True, Apple customers at that coffee shop might not understand why, halfway through the cup of coffee they just bought, that the store owner is NOT trying to sell them a new cup with a slightly different temperature, claiming is it better then their current cup.

Link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15461732




Apple's patent - US patent number 7657549 - states: "A device with a touch-sensitive display may be unlocked via gestures performed on the touch-sensitive display.



"The device is unlocked if contact with the display corresponds to a predefined gesture for unlocking the device."




The text of the patent is broad and would appear to cover a number of the technologies used by Google and Microsoft in their handheld devices.

Holy shit WTF? People will be along shortly to say since they were issued a patent on it that it Apple has a right to sue anybody that makes such a device/software. I'm not even talking about Apple fans either.

Isn't there some patent/court rule that you must protect your TM, otherwise your future lawsuits may not be allowed to proceed because you have a history of not protecting your TM ?
