Whether it is Apple, Microsoft, GE, Wal-Mart, or any big company, part of the cost of doing business is suing and being sued. Apple has brought trademark infringement suits against two stores in the Chinatown area of New York for allegedly selling Made in China knockoffs of Apple products which, among other things, include the famous logo. One store is even named “Apple Story.” While Apple-copying appears prevalent in China, Apple has focused here on stores in the US which are selling the knockoffs. Various iPad, iPod, and iPhone accessories based somewhat off of Apple’s designs, but manufactured in China were seized from the store. The federal judge overseeing the case has already issued a preliminary injunction preventing the stores from continuing to sell the products while the case is worked out, a typical sign that the judge finds merit in Apple’s case.
