Amazon wants Apple's law suit over App Store name to be dismissed
Amazon launched its store last year as the "Amazon Appstore for Android," but shortened the title with the release of its popular Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. Whleeeeile Amazon could make the claim that it took the Android name off of the title to put the focus on Amazon, Apple has argued that it was a deliberate attempt to confuse consumers and to attract developers who produce content for the stores.
In 2011, Apple unsuccessfully sought a preliminary injunction against the use of the name by Amazon. U.S. District Judge Phyliss Hamilton said that Apple had failed to prove that consumers would be confused by the two names. A hearing on the dismissal request is set for October 31st. If the judge refuses to throw out the case, and both sides can't reach an out of court settlement, a trial is set for August 19, 2013 which is something we can all look forward to.
