Amazon gets court to dismiss Apple's claim of false advertising
In 2008, Apple tried to register the App Store name with the USPTO, and Microsoft opposed the filing, saying that the phrase is generic. The Trademark Trials and Appeals Board put on hold an opposition proceeding until after the Apple-Amazon suit is resolved. Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet declined to comment on Hamilton's order, and Amazon has not yet commented.
For those legal beagles out there, a copy of the entire order can be found at the sourcelink.
