General Development "With the permission of IBM, the Computer History Museum is pleased to make available the source code to the 1969-1972 'XM6' version of APL for the System/360 for non-commercial use." This is great: we need to make sure material like this is preserved. We can learn from it.

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.

What I said is true. They didn't get destroyed and the suite isn't with regard to a.pl.

The logo does look a bit like the Apple logo, but not to such a level that it would be confusing, even more so because they are two totally kinds of businesses: fruit vs tech.

But....a.pl does not do business in the U.S, does it
I'm pretty sure the U.S has no jurisdiction in Poland.

We know that, not sure the U.S. does.
