Just about a week after Apple unveiled iCloud, it’s already being sued by a company called iCloud Communications over the iCloud trademark. iCloud Communications claims that the use of iCloud in Apple’s marketing could be damaging to their business.

And they’re serious about it too, requiring Apple to “deliver for destruction all [iCloud] labels, signs, prints, insignia, letterhead, brochures, business cards, invoices and any other written or recorded material.”

I know how all this is going to end: someone at iCloud Communications is going to get a big fat check with an Apple on it. How else would they work this out?

    Apple must have known about it before they made the name so i assume they will have a way around it or as you say a huge amount of money

  • Wtf

  • Braulio

    HAHAHA

    Considering that Apple has already released the service, there is no chance they would go back and change the name. I’m sure they’d secretly have the mafia kill the CEO of this company before that happens….kidding. But seriously, I’m sure Jobs will just write them a nice check to make them go away.

    If they have any iCloud airline in any country, are they going to sue apple too?
    Funny!

    • iYaSeeN

  • j_breez

    Apparently apple needs to rethink the whole lower case i brandin, they’re being sued by no names now, just to get publicity.

  • Icloud or icould

    This is like Delta Airlines getting sued by the sink company, or vice versa. They’re not getting a dime.

  • Todd

    Jobs will write a check (or buy them out and liquidate their assets) and it will all go away.

    The suing icloud should give a symbolic dollar to the guy who made wifi sync, just to rub it in apples face after apple pay them off 😀

    • Now that would be a solid gold gesture 🙂

  • fyi

    Back in late 30’s and early 40’s there was an organization in Europe behaving almost in the same way as Apple does today getting away with anything and everything and one will wonder why and for how long?

    Smart way to make money. Listen to apple rumors, start a company called whatever the applerumor says it’ll be. And then sue apple

    • iPhoneFANATIC

      Yeah rumor my ass, that company was founded in 2005. You must not be as smart as your method to make money, you doesn’t even seem able to read.

      • Patrick
