Apple loses "App Store" patent fight in Australia

The Federal court of Australia today ruled against Apple, which wanted a patent for the term "App Store". Apple wanted it since App came int usage only after it's iphones and "App Store" has a creative element in it and thus wants the patent. The court ruled that the usage of App is there before Apple invented it, and the widely used term in public should not be contained and patented.



Apple went to Federal court after the Registrar of trademarks, Australia refused to grant patent for the same.
