    Default Apple sues Polish grocery store lol

    Two weeks before unveiling its next-generation iPhone, Apple was busy filing a lawsuit against Polish grocery site A.pl.

    As reported by Polish news outlet Telepolis, Apple is railing against the online deli site because its title is just a little too reminiscent of the Cupertino-based company's moniker.

    A.pl, which advertises straight-to-your-door delivery, goes by the full name A.PL Internet SA. While ".pl" is actually Poland's country-wide domain, Apple is arguing a trademark issue, demanding that the Polish Patent Office cancel the site's trademark.

    Not even surprising at this point. It's east Europe, Apple will be told impolitely to go fuck themselves. Maybe a counter sue is in the works for psychological trauma - 1500 cases of Vodka requested.

    When Apple sued Samsung, it was all over main stream media.

    Well, I constantly listen to main stream media radio, and not once have I heard about this ludicrous lawsuit. Why is that?

    ...that's not rhetorical question.

    I am having trouble finding it, and it may not have been on beyond after all.

    Beyond is my news site, so i must have saw it on gizmodo or mobile syrup on FB.

    carry on.

    However, there my be some satire here. I remember the lawsuit naming a different company URL, I think it was ap.le or something similar.

    I guess in theory, if a Polak were to say "a pl", it would come out sounding very close to "apple" in English minus a pause. Despite that, I don't see Apple winning this one somehow.

    This one too:

    A café in Bonn called Apfelkind has become entangled in a legal fight with Apple over its logo, with the computing giant trying to block the café owner’s trademark application.
    Christin Römer opened her family café this May, naming it after the orchard growing nearby with the intention of creating an impression of a healthy, tasty and friendly place to go for a coffee and piece of home-made cake – apple and other options are usually on offer.

    How haven't they gone after Minute Maid yet for clear infringement regarding their "apple" juice product?

    also, when people say a url outloud they don't just ignore the dot. You wouldn't say "Beyondcom"... You say either "Beyond" or "Beyond-Dot-Com".

    In polish it's "A-.-P-L" and it's pronounced "Ah-Kropka-Peh-Ehl" (with a roll on the r).

    Apple is really grasping at straws.

    ironic, considering the name was stolen from The Beatles.

    he said hard work is not based off registering domain name. misread "Not capitalizing on domain names."

    either way Apple will be Apple.

    You're applying North American logic thinking "dot" gets translated. It should in Polish, but my family back there and most people I met travelling assume it's implied and don't say it (slang). I'd also be bet that's the way it's advertised. So it'd actually be just "ah-peh-elh" which sounds quite a bit like Apple. Apple's still grasping at straws though.
