Remember that ridiculously public to-and-fro’ing between Apple and Cisco over the “iPhone” trademark? Ding, ding, ding… welcome to round two ladies and gentlemen. In this corner, we have a feisty Taiwan-national with Microsoft in its pocket: HTC, and their HTC Touch.[…] Thanks to motang for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
streak: HTC filed a trademark application for “HTC Touch” in May 2007 and “Touch by HTC” just last month. “HTC” is always attached to “Touch”. It’s not like Microsoft trying to trademark “Windows” alone or Apple’s trademark on “iPod” alone. Apple should have no trouble defending itself.
springo: “Apple’s ability to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement”, that is, pay a big sum of money to shut them up.
Rileyper: Better invite Creatives Zen Touch for the party dispute
