A U.S. judge has denied Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction against Amazon aimed at forcing the online retailer to stop using the “App Store” name. Reuters reports that U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton did not agree with Amazon’s argument that the term is purely generic in her order released yesterday, but also stated that Apple has not established “a likelihood of confusion” with Amazon’s service needed for an injunction. A trial date in the trademark case is set for October 2012. [via Mac Rumors]
