Cisco, Apple iPhone name negotiations extended

A story by Reuters today reports that Cisco has given Apple more time to respond to the “iPhone” trademark lawsuit filed last month by the company. “Cisco has agreed to give Apple an extension until Wednesday, February 21,” Cisco said in a statement. “Cisco is fully committed to using the extra time to reach a mutually beneficial resolution.” Reuters notes: “Cisco obtained the iPhone trademark in 2000 after acquiring a company called Infogear, which had previously owned the trademark and had sold devices called iPhones for several years. Linksys, a division of Cisco, has been selling wireless products with the iPhone name since early last year, with new products added to the line in December.”
