Bad Apple

A German friend of mine alerted me to a recent Apple logo infringement story.

This one involves a tiny German cafe in the city of Bonn called Apfelkind.

The name roughly translates as Apple Baby.

According to the owner of the cafe Christin Römer Apple have claimed that the logo could cause confusion with Apple’s global brand.

Now I don't know about you but I reckon the legal people at Apple must surely have better things to do with their time.

Seriously. Claiming that those two logos are similar is just ridiculous.

Mind you Apple do have form in this area having already taken on Aussie supermarket chain Woolworths over their new logo.
