Apple’s false ad claim on Amazon Appstore dismissed

Apple’s false advertising claim over Amazon’s use of “app store” has been dismissed, according to a report. The claim was part of Apple’s lawsuit against Amazon for use of the term “app store,” a suit that began in March 2011. As the court filing notes, “The mere use of ‘Appstore’ by Amazon to designate a site for viewing and downloading/purchasing apps cannot be construed as a representation that the nature, characteristics, or quality of the Amazon Appstore is the same as that of that of the Apple App Store.” It’s worth noting that this is only a partial summary judgment, and one of six parts of Apple’s case, so the case will continue.
