I think.. that Apple uses App Store as..
Apple Store
not
Application Store
Which is why they are getting their panties in a bunch.

The term App has been around long before the iPod was invented. So apple can shove it where the sun don't shine if they think they own the phrase.

Well the phrase isn't registered as far as I can tell, and the rest of the world reads it as Application Store.

App is pretty synonymous with application any time it's used.

I'm going to trademark the word "car". Every car maker will have to pay me to use the word.

Ah but the company is allowed to sue over a PHRASE? And that's not retarded? You sir need to look in the mirror.

If we don't stand up to stupid corporations like this, we are going to be living in THEIR world, using THEIR technology, and listening to what THEY say.

Good luck, may want to try one of those online petitions I hear they work well.

I know the trolls love to **** on everything Apple because they don't have anything better to do with their time but this is common practice and isn't going away anytime soon. Blame the legal system/patent system what have you.

I dont understand why this forum gets its panties in a bunch every time a company tries to protect its trademarks. Everyone knows the App Store is for Apple products. There's the App Market for Android and App World for RIM. Oh wait, it's Apple, that's why.
