Rotten To The Corps... Apple Corps That Is!!!

Quote:
Thanks to the Beatles and a three-year-old lawsuit filed on behalf of their Apple Corps company, Apple Computer could find itself in a bit of a pickle if things don't quite go their way in a London, England High Court this week.

Apple Corps Ltd. ó a company founded in 1968 and still owned by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as the heirs of deceased Beatles John Lennon And George Harrison ó is suing Apple Computer once again, this time over its iPod devices and accompanying iTunes music delivery service.

Whatever the result, it looks like the trial, which begins on Wednesday, is going to be an interesting and unprecedented one. The judge who will be hearing the case, the Honorable Mr. Justice Mann, has already asked both sides whether they feel he should disqualify himself.

But why would he fathom doing such a thing, you might ask?

Why else?

He owns an iPod.
linkage



Let me tell you how it will be
Thereís one for you, nineteen for me
ícause Iím the taxman, yeah, Iím the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I donít take it all
ícause Iím the taxman, yeah Iím the taxman

If you drive a car, Iíll tax the street,
If you try to sit, Iíll tax your seat.
If you get too cold Iíll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, Iíll tax your feet.

Donít ask me what I want it for
If you donít want to pay some more
ícause Iím the taxman, yeah, Iím the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
ícause Iím the taxman, yeah, Iím the taxman
And youíre working for no one but me

You can't copyrite the word "apple". I'm tired of everyone stealing from and trying to rip off apple. Case in point: Windows. And good luck finding a judge without an iPod.

No, but you can trademark it. I don't know how these things work in the UK, but in the US, the burden is on the trademark holder to "vigorously defend" their mark against infringement. A "diluted" trademark is worthless in the marketplace, and can result in claims against direct infringement being indefensible.

This is ridiculous. The only reason this lawsuit should have any bearing is if people are getting confused between either brand. Tell me the last time you thought Apple Records had anything to do with computers and electronic gadgets.

This is how some lawyers make a living.
