Apple is suing Amazon in a bid to stop the online retail giant from using the name Appstore.
The California-based firm, which makes iPhones and iPads, claims that the name is deliberately similar to its own App Store.
"It will confuse and mislead customers," said Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet.
Amazon's Appstore will offer downloadable applications for Google's Android operating system.
The lawsuit states: "Amazon has begun improperly using Apple's App Store mark in connection with Amazon's mobile software developer program.
If Amazon can patent one-click shopping I guess Apple can trademark "App Store."Love it. EXACTLY! Go Apple! If it were anyone else other than Amazon (which I use and appreciate, BTW), I'd agree in saying that this is annoying. But, if I were to be the lawyer for Apple, I'd stand before the judge, quote atadams, and sit down.
