Interestingly, Amazon’s answer made use of quotes from Steve Jobs to prove that the term ‘app store’ is generic and not subject to trademark protection.” About The Author Thom Holwerda Follow me on Twitter @thomholwerda 4 Comments 2011-04-27 2:41 pm jgagnon Here’s to hoping that other obviously common trademarked words get invalidated too. Like Windows and Apple, for instance. 2011-04-27 5:25 pm KrimZon What windows do you mean? Do you mean OS/X windows? Or Canonical’s windows called Ubuntu? And do you mean an apple like Dell or Asus or the one that made OS/X? (I think they were called MAC or something) 2011-04-27 9:30 pm Neolander My new windows rock. They’re large, let lots of light enter, do not require lots of cleaning, and provide very good phonic isolation. The manufacturer recently claimed in an ad that they had a lawyer certify that they won’t break under the load of 1 people hanging on it, too, so they seem to be rather sturdy too. The great lightning they provide is perfect for lying on my bed while eating juicy apples in the middle of summer. Could you imagine a world where the name of these could be patented ?
