Poor Cisco! They want a piece of a pie too, failing to produce anything people would want or even know about (re: their own iPhone).

Did you read the article? Apple is the usurper here, not Cisco.

Cisco bought the trademark when it purchased InfoGear back in 2000. Since that time, Cisco has introduced products into the market under that name and, regardless of Apple's ambitions, Cisco deserves protection by the court.
