According to a report comes from the WSJ, Apple suffers setback in dispute over iPhone name in Mexico!
Apple Loses Appeal Over iPhone Trademark in Mexico
When Apple tried to file for the ‘iPhone’ trademark in Mexico they were told by the Mexican Industrial Property Institute that the name was already taken.
Apple sued to have the Ifone brand revoked on grounds it had expired for the Mexican company, but a federal court found that Ifone SA, registered in 2003, was making proper use of it. The Supreme Court this week rejected Apple’s appeal against the decision at the request of Ifone.
The company’s lawyer says they have already submitted a claim for damages resulting from use of its name by Apple and cellular carriers in the country.
