Apple Stays on iTunes

Published: 2006-05-10
The battle of Apple vs. Apple has finally come up with a verdict.

Apple Corps, the record label owned by the fab four lost its case against Steve Jobs' Apple Computers over their shared fruit logo. Apple Corps sued the computer company stating that by opening the iTunes music store it had breached a contract that the two companies signed in 1991 stating that Apple Computers would not stomp on Apple Corps' territory and enter the music business.

But a London judge ruled on May 8 that iTunes can continue using the Apple logo for iTunes as the logo represented a store and not the music itself.

But the boys from Britain aren't giving up that easily, according to Reuters Apple Corps' manager Neil Aspinall said, "With great respect to the trial judge, we consider he has reached the wrong conclusion." Apple Corps will appeal the case, no pun intended.
