When Amazon launched their App Store, Apple were less than happy about the name Amazon had used, as Apple has been using the App Store name since theirs launched.
Amazon had argued that the name was generic, but Apple decided to sue them anyway, this was back in 2011, and now before the case proceeds, the judge dealing with it has told the two companies to try and reach a settlement.
US judge Elizabeth Laporte has ordered Amazon and Apple to meet on the 21st of March to try and reach an agreement on the lawsuit before the case goes to trial.
We suspect that neither Apple or Amazon will back down and they will end up in court battling it out over the use of the ‘App Store’ name.
