iPhone Trademark Issues

Filed under: General — lonelymanofcake @ 12:10 pm

A little while back, the LonelyManofCake conjectured that Apple collaborated with Linksys, “letting” them register the trademark for an innocuous VoIP product called the iPhone in order to create more buzz about their forthcoming revolutionary product. I concluded, prematurely, that Linksys would quietly, and with a wink, hand over to Apple the rights to the name iPhone.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. Linksys is not giving up easily, and has even gone so far as to publish a full-page ad in the New York Times touting the virtues of their iPhone product (pictured below; click here for full size). I can’t read the fine print at the bottom, but I wonder whether they have a line about their product being unrelated to Apple’s.
