Apple vs. Apple ruling
With the conclusion nearing of Apple Computer vs. Apple Corps lawsuit in London, the High Court judge said that he is unlikely to rule before Easter. The Associated Press reports that lawyers for both sides squared off in London's High Court on Wednesday in the closing stages of the trial: "In one corner, Apple Corps Ltd.'s lawyer Geoffrey Vos said Apple Computer Inc. is a 'Johnny-Come-Lately' that is attempting to steal the British company's trademark and increasingly encroach on its territory. In the other corner, Apple Computer lawyer Anthony Grabiner said the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is doing nothing wrong and music lovers are smart enough to tell the difference between the use of the apple logos." According to the report, presiding judge Edward Mann reserved his judgment for an unnamed date, but said that it was unlikely to be before the Easter, which is April 16th.
