Submission + - Microsoft fights Apple trademark on 'App Store' ( 1

angry tapir writes: "Microsoft is asking the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to deny Apple a trademark on the name "App Store," saying the term is generic and competitors should be able to use it. Apple applied for the trademark in 2008 for goods and services including "retail store services featuring computer software provided via the internet and other computer and electronic communication networks" and other related offerings."

  • Pretty ridiculous patent 'app'lication, Apple. Microsoft shouldn't need to try to get this denied; it's utter nonsense, I say.
