Apple and Amazon settle dispute over use of 'app store'

by TabTimes Staff

July 9 2013

Apple and Amazon.com have settled their legal dispute over who has rights to use the "app store" name.

Apple tried to trademark the "App Store" name back in 2008 when it launched the first App Store for iPhone and sued Amazon in March 2011 on the charge that it misused the "App Store" name.  

Amazon's contention throughout the hearings had been that "app store" is a generic term.

Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet stated, "We no longer see a need to pursue our case. With more than 900,000 apps and 50 billion downloads, customers know where they can purchase their favorite apps."
