Apple sues Swedish Language Council

Following Google’s success  in having ‘ungoogleable’  banned from the Swedish language because of  trademark considerations, Apple is  applying similar pressure on  the world’s premier corporate copyright compliant country.

Apple jobs“Google wanted to amend the definition of the word and also have the council add a disclaimer to the list of new words to make it clear that Google is a trademark,” says the IDG News Service.

But that didn’t sit well with the council,  so it “decided to remove the word.”

Now Apple is  suing the Swedish Language Council.

“Apple’s Apple trademark  is at the very least  as famous as Google’s in fact, it’s probably more famous,”  an Apple spokes person  says, snapping:

“Just because Google is Google it can’t do anything it wants, and that needs to be made crystal clear!”
