According to PCWorld, iCloud Communications has filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging trademark infringement of the name iCloud. Apple recently launched its iCloud service, which syncs users' content on all their devices automatically. CRN quotes the complaint:
The goods and services with which Apple intends to use the 'iCloud' mark are identical to or closely related to the goods and services that have been offered by iCloud Communications under the iCloud Marks since its formation in 2005 ... However, due to the worldwide media coverage given to and generated by Apple's announcement of its 'iCloud' services and the ensuing saturation advertising campaign pursued by Apple, the media and the general public have quickly come to associate the mark 'iCloud' with Apple, rather than iCloud Communications.
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona. As CNET News reports, iCloud Communications is seeking an injunction against Apple's use of the iCloud name, in addition to an unspecified amount of monetary compensation.
