iClould Communications sues Apple over iCloud name

Yet another patent infringement lawsuit has arrived. This time it’s Arizona-based iCloud Communications suing Apple for infringing on their trademark over the use of the name “iCloud”.

iCloud Communications notes that since Apple’s WWDC the term “iCloud” has become associated with Apple, rather than them. The filing doesn’t show what monetary amount iCloud Communications is seeking, but according to the filing they are requesting Apple to stop using “all labels, signs, prints, insignia, letterhead, brochures, business cards, invoices and any other written or recorded material or advertisements” that have the iCloud name it. In addition, the court doc states that “Upon information and belief, at the time Apple elected to adopt “iCloud”for its cloud computing telecommunications and data services, Apple was aware of or was willfully blind to iCloud Communications’ use of and rights in the iCloud Marks”

Pretty sure Apple easily elected to use the term iCloud. A simple Google search by can find it was already thought of years ago.
