Cisco sues Apple over use of iPhone name
CISCO Systems sued Apple Inc in federal court, saying the computer maker's new iPhone violates its trademark.
The lawsuit, filed yesterday in US District Court for the Northern District of California, came just a day after Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple iPhone in dramatic fashion at a trade show in San Francisco, The Associated Press reported today.
But even while Jobs was trumpeting the product, the matter of the product's naming had not been resolved behind the scenes between two of Silicon Valley's biggest names. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief to prevent Apple from copying Cisco's iPhone trademark.
