    Default Odp: Thought this was funny and interesting.

    Well they need to as it is there logo, if they would not trademark it every one could use it commertionaly and use brand value that they not own. Its not like every logo concept featuring apple will conflict with them you just need to watch out on one simple apple, it just happens that some big company decided to call themselves apple and have it as a logo.

    Spare me. Apple not suing an Apple orchard would do nothing to harm their precious brand.

    They have a legal responsibility to do so. If they do not defend their trademarks, they lose the legal right to do it in the future.

    They HAVE trademarked their logo, as well as their name. Apple has not gone after everyone that uses an apple as their logo, nor have they gone after everyone that uses Apple in their name.

    that is 100% BS. They do not have to defend their Trademark to that degree. That orchard has every right to use any apple in their logo. They are not misrepresenting their business.

    But Apple Auto glass also has a registered trademark. And they have been in business longer than Apple. So maybe they should be suing Apple tech instead?

    You see how stupid it is? Protection of a trademark should and usually only matters if it infringes on the company's ability to do business without confusion in the market. All of the logos being used are much different than the Apple logo and have good reasoning behind their use. Apple is just playing bully.

    No one loves a bully.

    They're a corporation. Of course they are blood sucking "a-holes". It's just business. Apple can trademark their apple logo, just like Sprint can trademark their lemon-lime logo, just like Mobile Nations can trademark their orange slate logo.

    And each of them would have every right to defend their trademark as they see fit.

    You are 100% correct. But doing something because you can doesn't always make you good.

    I can choose to walk past a person who has fallen down, but a good person stops and does the right thing. Apple can choose to sue innocent hard working small businesses if they like but a corporation with heart and integrity would choose not to.

    So are you saying that it's okay for Apple to sue the school, the grocery store and the apple orchard? Do you think big businesses should be doing this to small businesses on a regular basis? I just want clarification.

    What about 'they have to' don't you understand? In order for apple to keep their trademark they are REQUIRED to defend it. They don't have a choice unless they want to lose the rights to it.

    Oh and FYI: the school apple sued didn't even have Apple in the name. They just so happened to choose to design their logo very similarly to apples, and also just so happens to be a technology school. Too many 'coincidences' to be unintentional.

    Also, apple has never sued an orchard. Ever.

    It has nothing to do with hate. We are talking about business practices that hurt people or benefit them.
