Judge Says Apple Will 'Probably' Lose Its Case Against Amazon

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said she will 'probably' rule against Apple's motion to stop Amazon from using the words 'app store' to describe their app store, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said today after a hearing in Oakland, California, that she is "probably" going to deny the motion because Apple hasn't demonstrated confusion among consumers. Hamilton said she will review court filings before issuing a final decision.
