Apple is facing some difficulties in its suit to stop Amazon from using the “appstore” name for its Android application store. Reuters reports that District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said during a hearing yesterday that she would reread some of the supporting papers in the case, but added that Apple has a “stumbling block” in proving that anyone would confuse its App Store with Amazon’s Appstore for Android. As such, Hamilton did not make a final ruling, nor did she give any date as to when a ruling might be handed down. Apple sued Amazon over its use of the “App Store” trademark in March, claiming both trademark infringement and unfair competition. [via MDN]
