Legal Just as Apple wraps up one lawsuit with Nokia, they have been hit with another one by a Phoenix based company named iCloud Communications. iCloud Communications, a VoIP vendor, claims that Apple's new iCloud causes confusion with competing products, and has harmed their image because anytime someone hears the name 'iCloud', they will now think of Apple instead of iCloud Communications.

Or Icom communications, a very large communications equipment company. So what if the I is uppercase instead of lowercase? Still sounds the same when you say it. Maybe they should have sued Apple? Icom has been around since 1954 after all.

Point is, Apple, and several have pointed this out already, there were lots of companies using trademarks starting with the letter "i" before Apple ever started using it.
