iCloud Communications sues Apple for obvious reasons

You probably know the drill by now — Cupertino introduces a new product with a name that ostensibly belongs to someone else, and for better or worse that someone decides to take Apple to court. Today, it’s iCloud Communications charging out of the left corner to sock Apple’s iCloud square in the wallet. Arizona-based iCloud Communications appears to be a VoIP equipment and service provider, though in court documents it claims to be a cloud computing company as well, and claims that it’s been using the term iCloud (and the above logo) to sell such services since 2005. It’s asking the court to destroy all iCloud marketing materials, pay damages and even invalidate the iCloud trademark that Apple bought from Xcerion — the only registered iCloud trademark so far — but what’s probably going to actually happen here is a nice little settlement out of court. We’ll let you know if there’s any reason to break out the popcorn.
