Apple picks litigation in St. Petersburg 60

Courts and scandals


As we already know, the company Apple seeks to patent anything and everything and tries to defend everything that even remotely resembles its intellectual property. One such story began to unfold in St. Petersburg, where a defendant acted local company “Panimport.”

The company provides services of a customs broker and carries compensatory support to enterprises that are engaged in activities related to imports and exports. Among the services offered by “Panimport” online client called «iBroker», and called that claim from an American company.

As you might guess, Apple did not like the use of the name client lowercase English letter «i» about the word «Broker». In this case no information about whether Apple has registered this title on his name in Russia, not reported.

According to the agency RAPS Corporation asks the court to prohibit “Panimportu” use of the name «iBroker», and also seeks compensation in the amount of 50,000 rubles. Let’s wait for the details of the story – namely, the fact of the alleged violation. If Apple feels that he can prohibit people without permission to use a small «i», it is hardly to be expected that this case would be for her success.
