Big Apple vs. Apple Inc. in logo brouhaha
[url=http://nyc.gov/html/planyc2030/html/greenyc/greenyc.shtml]GreenNYC[/url] is a campaign for reducing carbon emissions in the Big Apple by 30 percent by 2030. The company lists 10 steps to help achieve this goal on its web site.
New York City has applied for a trademark on the logo, but Apple has filed a formal opposition obtained by Wired. Apple is calling for the trademark to be denied, claiming the city's logo will confuse people and "seriously injure the reputation which [Apple] has established for its goods and services."
"The city believes that Apple's claims have no merit and that no consumer is likely to be confused," Gerald Singleton, the intellectual-property lawyer representing New York, told Apple. "This well-known city is using its new design in a variety of contexts that have absolutely nothing to do with Apple Inc."
