Apple won a lawsuit on Wednesday over the use of the term “iBooks” as Black Tower Press, which sued Apple in 2011, was ruled not to have exclusive rights to the term. Black Tower Press, a small publisher, owned the “ibooks” mark, but never obtained a registered trademark. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote explained “ibooks” only described books sold on the Internet, and wrote that consumers would not confuse Apple’s iBooks with the term used by Black Tower Press.
