Apple sued for a Chinese brand due to the App Store logo


When Apple released iOS 11, many were surprised to see a new icon for the App Store, very similar to the previous one, but much more conceptual . Instead of tools (a pencil, a brush and a ruler), it showed a kind of A, formed simply by thick lines, in the same arrangement as the tools of before.

Now, a Chinese brand called KON has sued Apple in its country to argue that the company has copied its logo, and therefore violates Chinese copyright laws. A judge in Beijing has accepted the case.
The truth is that both logos are very similar ... can not be denied. But it is also quite clear that in this case, it is simply a coincidence ... in fact, the way to cross each line, is not exactly the same in the vertex of the left, but in any case Apple's lawyers in China will have to Give your version to protect this logo and see what happens. In addition to money, KON asks Apple for a public apology in the national media, something that in China seems to be common.
