Apple now sued for “iBooks” Trademark infringement

Browse This Page

New York publisher John T. Colby purchased assets belonging to publisher Byron Preiss several years ago, and included in that buy were more than 1,000 books published under the “ibooks” name. Apple does however have a trademark for “iBook” which was a laptop they released prior to MacBooks.

John T. Colby currently owns the copyright to the iBooks name and has decided to Sue Apple for the same.

[quote]Apple’s use of the mark ‘iBooks’ to denote the electronic library that can be accessed via its iPad tablet computer and its iPhone is likely to overwhelm the good will of plaintiffs’ ‘ibooks’ and ‘ipicturebooks’ marks and render them virtually worthless,” Colby’s lawsuit states.[/quote]
