Apple Inc. (AAPL) sued Amazon.com Inc., saying the online retailer is improperly using Apple’s “App Store” trademark for a mobile software developer program.
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.
“Amazon has begun improperly using Apple’s App Store mark in connection with Amazon’s mobile software developer program,” Apple said in the complaint. Amazon also plans to use the name with a mobile software download service, the complaint states.
