Microsoft v Apple re Genericness of APP STORE


This is Microsoft’s brief for summary judgement in its TTAB opposition to Apple’s application for the mark APP STORE.

The brief alleges that Steve Jobs used the term ‘app store’ to refer to competitors. I can picture the Apple in-house trademark lawyer going into his office the next day: “Great keynote speech yesterday, Mr. Jobs.  One small quibble . . . ”
