iCloud Communications Sues Apple

iCloud Communications sues Apple for obvious reasons and charging out of the left corner to sock Apple’s iCloud square in the wallet. Arizona-based iCloud Communications appears to be a VoIP equipment and service provider and claims that it’s been using the term iCloud to sell such services since 2005………


The Arizona-based remote storage company contends that Apple iCloud copies its name, causes a business-severing identity mixup and even offers the same services. iCloud Communications is asking Apple to stop using iCloud and destroy all labels, signs, prints, insignia, letterhead, brochures, business cards, invoices and any other written or recorded material or advertisements that use its name. In addition the complaint calls for all profits, gains and advantages obtained from Apple’s unlawfulconduct and all monetary damages sustained and to be sustained, including lost profits and reasonable royalties. In other words, the company wants a lot of cash from what it says is the largest tech company in the world. iCloud Communications attempts to boost its case by alleging that this isn’t the first time Apple has infringed upon others’ trademarks. “Although Apple aggressively protects its trademark rights, Apple has a long and well known history of knowingly and willfully treading on the trademark rights of others — a history which began as early as the 1970s when Apple was first sued for trademark infringement by the Beatles record label, Apple Corp.” The documents also mentions other trademark debacles Apple had in the past with McIntosh Labs, Management and Computer Services (MACS), the “Mighty Mouse” cartoon character, iPhone, iPad and iAd. If the past is any indication of how this case will turn out, Apple and iCloud Communications will likely settle out of court.
