Deja Vu: Apple Sues Someone Because Their Logo Looks Like Fruit

As part of a legal manoeuvre worthy of Monster Cable, Apple has set its lawyers on Australia's largest supermarket chain because their new logo is a little tad too similar to their own.

Exhibit A, Woolworths newly redesigned logo, is on the left. Apple's iconic apple logo is on the right. Not that similar at all, but the real issue, at least with Apple, is probably that Woolworths might expand its retail business into electronics and somehow threaten that lucrative iPod business.

"While we can't rule [computers, musical players, or other devices]out, we haven't got any plans at the moment," said a Woolworths spokesman in a statement to AppleInsider.

To Apple's credit, they've moved up from suing school systems to supermarket megachains. Bigger fish, and all that. [AppleInsider]
