Battle for ‘App Store’ title just got heated up over font size!
The contest over the name ‘App Store’ between Microsoft and Apple just got a lot more…amusing, err! Last week, Apple filed a brief defending its right to own the ‘App Store’ title for themselves. However, instead of coming up with counter-arguments, Microsoft filed their own motion, attacking Apple’s brief of having too many pages and using smaller font size!
As silly and lol-worthy as it may sound, Microsoft does have every right to defend it as such. As Neowin points out, the court places a rule of having a 25 page motion with 11 point font size. Apple had instead filed in a 31 page motion with a smaller font, which should not be allowed no matter the case or the company involved.
Microsoft has now asked to dismiss the motion and require Apple to provide a new brief that “complies with the rules and does not add any new matter or aguments.”
Maybe Microsoft is not holding the brief “the correct” way? Just saying…
