it's about a logo on fresh24.p


Maybe it's just me but I don't see a logo there that is even remotely like the Apple logo.

Rumor has it it was their old logo, but even that can't be confused with Apple's.

Even so I doubt anyone goes on-line to buy an iMac and ends up with a box of oranges.

Well, that's not quite true. A.pl may have some problems related to their own business, but this lawsuit didn't help them a bit.

Besides - the problem remains. Is that even remotely similar to the original Apple logo?

And - is "A.pl" even remotely similar to Apple?

No and no. There's something deeply wrong with US law which allows such claims.
