Apple Tells Another App Store to Stop Calling Themselves an \'App Store\'

Posted by · 10392 views · Translate

Apple has sent a cease-and-desist letter to MiKandi, an adult novelties store that describes itself as "the world's first app store for adults", according to MacNN.

The MiKandi app store is itself an app that can be installed on Android smartphones. Customers can pay a third-party that converts their money into "points" that then qualify for downloading adult apps from within the app.

Apple believes it has ownership of the 'app store' term and looks to be legally attacking anyone who uses the words. On March 18th Apple filed a lawsuit against Amazon for use of the term.

MiKandi plans to ignore the request for now, pending the result of Microsoft's challenge to Apple's trademark registration.

Actually, Apple can\'t do that because they were not given the copyright.
