Apple case result to be heard after Easter

By Derek Sooman on
In the Apple Computer versus Apple Corps case, the verdict is due to be heard after Easter.

Apple Corps' lawyer Geoffrey Vos has branded Apple Computer a "Johnny-Come-Lately" for attempting to steal the British company's trademark and increasingly encroaching on its territory of the music business.

In the other corner, Apple Computer's lawyer Anthony Grabiner has said the Cupertino, Calif.-based company was doing nothing wrong and music lovers were smart enough to tell the difference between the use of the two logos.

Last Wednesday, lawyers for both sides squared off in London's High Court. Apple Computer strongly contends its right to use the logo because it does not own the rights to the music, and merely uses digital technology to distribute it. We will soon see whether the law agrees with them.
