When Amazon launched their Amazon App Store, Apple were not very pleased with the choice of name of the store by Amazon, and they decided to sue Amazon.
Now it looks like the two companies have decided to settle their dispute over the App Store name, and Apple has decided to withdraw the case against Amazon, you can see a statement from both companies below.
“We no longer see a need to pursue our case,” Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said. “With more than 900,000 apps and 50 billion downloads, customers know where they can purchase their favorite apps.”
Martin Glick, a lawyer for Amazon, said in an interview, “This was a decision by Apple to unilaterally abandon the case, and leave Amazon free to use ‘appstore.'”
