    It's a trademark and yes it runs out but the owner can just refile and keep control of it since trademarks tend to be important icons for the company (like the bitten Apple logo).

    Oh come on, give Apple a break. If it was the other way around Apple wouldnt sue over something so trivial. They are angels.

    Apple have got some balls to take Samsung to task and pull a stunt like this.

    If I hadn't looked at your name I would have thought you were serious :p
     
  8. The biggest copycat in the world!
     
  9. How dare Apple copy the very same time as someone else! I've lost all faith in humanity and especially this website.

    All of you who have taken a photo of ANYTHING better watch out. And make damn sure your watch is set for a different time!

    Apple's logo - a bite off an apple denotes embarking on the forbidden.
