Amazon responded in court papers, arguing that the words "app" and "store" are both generic phrases that can't be trademarked.

Now, after more than two years of litigation, Apple has dropped its case. There was no settlement; Apple just walked away before a trial. It had to give Amazon a "covenant not to sue" over the issue, or else Amazon would have continued with its counterclaims seeking to knock out Apple's trademark.

Apple gives up on failing App Store v. Appstore trademark lawsuit


One more frivolous lawsuit bites the dust.
