Amazon Can Call Their App Store 'Appstore' For Now

The war over the “App Store” name is far from over, but Amazon’s been granted a small reprieve by a US judge, having denied Apple from requesting a preliminary injunction on the use of the term.

While the judge didn’t agree with Amazon’s claims that “App Store” (or even “Appstore”, as they phrase it) is generic, the judge did tell Apple they haven’t established a “likelihood of confusion”.

It’s been almost four months since Amazon’s Appstore launched, and Apple filed a lawsuit for trademark infringement, but it doesn’t look like a decision will be made anytime soon, with a trial date set for October. [Reuters]
