They sue Apple from China for the App Store logo

With iOS 11 came many changes to Apple devices. Among them, we saw how the mythical logo of the App Store and the iTunes Store changed . However, sometimes the changes are not as good as they seem, and here we explain why.

Recently Apple has been sued by a Chinese company for the illegal use of "their logo". It is not the first time that this happens to the Cupertino, because only a few months ago we saw another company complaining that Apple had stolen the name "Animoji".

The App Store and death, more linked than ever 

The name of the company in question is KON, a clothing brand and textile company that operates on Asian soil. The meaning of this logo, according to the spokespersons of the company, is to symbolize power over death . For their creation, they declared that they were based on the song of Sex Pistols "Anarchy In The UK", and that is why it is so similar to an "A" letter.

It is clear that the meaning that KON has given to its logo is quite different from the Apple App Store, however, we must not deny that they have a more than remarkable similarity in many aspects of the design, except for some small details.

Few days to know the outcome 

KON ensures that the use of "your logo" in the Apple App Store has hurt you in many ways, starting with the loss of sales . In addition, they want Apple to stop selling devices that are using that logo today.

It is not the first time that Apple is sued on Chinese soil, and most likely not the last. The case has already been admitted and will be carried out next week.

We do not know how this will end. It is very unlikely that they will comply with all the conditions that the KON company requests from Apple, but nevertheless, this does not mean that they do not have the opportunity to win this case. Next week we can see the outcome of this story.
