CUPERTINO – Apple seems to be haunted by an array of ‘bad luck’ beginning 2013. One of its largest stores was robbed in Paris; thieves allegedly stole for millions of dollars in inventory and a judge in China declared the company must pay copyright violation severance to Chinese writers.

Now a judge in California has decreed that Apple can not forbid online giant Amazon.com from using the name ‘Amazon Appstore’.
According to the judge, Apple falsely accused Amazon of putting out misleading commercials, by referring to Appstore. He stated that Amazon does not give the impression that its Appstore is the same in content and quality as the Apple Appstore.
Apple got slammed for the second time trying to “keep” the name Appstore as its own.
Just last year, the Cupertino based company sued several European companies over their use of Appstore. These companies proved hundreds of documents proving Appstore is a generic name, not specific.
Part of the proof offered referred to former Apple CEO calling his competitors’ stores Appstores.
These lawsuits are still ongoing but insiders believe that Apple will not come out victorious.
The lawsuit in the United States between Apple and Amazon has not yet ended either. The judge will still have to decide if Apple has brand name rights to claim ‘Appstore’ as its own or if the name is generic and can be used by everyone.
