Apple battle over iPhone name moves to Canada

Apple has been met with another fight for the iPhone brand name by a small company in Canada. “Comwave Telecom Inc. has used the iPhone brand since 2004 to sell Internet phone service to its customers, and filed documents opposing Apple’s motion to take the name,” reports Bloomberg News. “The dispute expands Apple’s legal woes over the brand, which Cisco Systems claims to have trademarked in the U.S. The spat also may lead to delays in getting the phone to Canadian consumers.” Comwave president Yuval Barzakay said, “It’s a crucial brand for us… Our legal folks believe we’re certainly in the driver’s seat.” As previously reported, Apple is currently battling Cisco Systems over the iPhone trademark in the U.S.
