Google Play Newsstand launches on Android, coming to Apple's iOS in 2014 - Page 2

post #41 of 50

No-one's mentioned yet that Amazon also have a Newsstand service which I believe was launched at about the same time as Apple's.  Given that Apple haven't kicked up a fuss over that, I think the chances of them taking on Google over the name are slim to none.

In the first place Apple can't legitimately sue over over the name Google used so it's a ridiculous discussion.Not only did they use a different name they have pretty useful features that go well beyond Apple's Newsstand app. rolleyes:

Use of trademarked name in the same industry.

Ah, you believe Apple trademarked Google Play Newsstand. Or is it Apple trademarked the word "newsstand"? Or is it no one really used the term "newsstand" before Apple did?

Perhaps you could point to where on this page Apple have a trademark for Newsstand?

 

No, didn't think so.

No, Britain is not the entire world. It is not even the entire UK.

 

But the company does sell to residents of the US, and has set its website up to make this convenient for people living there (as it has for many other countries). It is a world wide business, and is legally said to be trading in those countries. Being based in the UK, it would have to abide by international treaties for the collection / payment of sales tax, and would have to submit approriate tax forms in the US.

They did file for a trademark on the icon tho, which is certainly logical.

I think "dumping" of digital goods would be much harder to prove than physical goods.
