Microsoft disses font size in Apple’s case filing, asks court to disregard

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…
