Apple's legal attack dogs devour humble Polish grocery site
As Apple boffins stand on the brink of unleashing the new iPhone on the trembling population of the known world, elsewhere, the tech giant’s legal team are quietly righting wrongs wherever they may occur.
No, it’s not Samsung this time, but a Polish online grocery called A.pl - oh yes. The Polish patent office has received a complaint from Apple, claiming that the grocery company has nicked its logo and is trading on its good name.
A spokesman for the patent office said: “Apple brand is widely recognised and the company says that A.pl, by using the name that sounds similar, is using Apple's reputation.”
It’s an easy mistake to make. Well done Apple – keep fighting the fight.
