Court Dismisses Apple's 'Appstore' Claims Against Amazon

Related: Amazon, Apple, Appstore, App Store, Android

Here an App Store, there an Appstore, everyone has an App Store. A United States district court just dismised the claim from Apple that Amazon.com was trying to mislead consumers with their launch of a mobile 'appstore.' Their argument was that they've been using 'App Store' for years, and that 'Appstore' would create confusion that it had something to do with Apple.

The court has just ruled that the mere use of 'Appstore' was too generic of a term, and that there was no deceit of users by Amazon in any of the marketing.

Think that's it? No, there's still 6 more parts to the case to go on the trademark infringement case that have yet to be ruled on.

The Amazon Appstore for the Google Android operating systems was opened on March 22, 2011 and is now available worldwide.
