Submission + - Judge rejects Apple bid for injunction against Ama (

suraj.sun writes: Judge rejects Apple bid for injunction against Amazon:

A U.S. judge denied Apple Inc's attempt to quickly stop online retailer Inc from using the "App Store" name, according to a court document. Apple also asked a federal judge in Oakland, Calif. for a preliminary injunction to stop Amazon from using the name, which Apple says is trademark protected. However, Amazon argued that the term is generic and therefore not protectable.

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton did not agree that the term is purely generic, according to an order released on Wednesday. However Apple has not established "a likelihood of confusion" with Amazon's services to get an injunction, Hamilton wrote.
