iPod name usage

Recommended Posts

In the 9/21 (?) show you mentioned lawyers asking sites to not use the iPod name in products or urls. You kind of joked that they might go after those with Mac in their name next. Well, Apple has requested Google to stop any ads with the word "Mac" in it's title. Several Mac isv's have reported their ads pulled by Google at the request of Apple.

:wink:

 

Thats bad news for the Macalister, Macara, Macaskill, Macaulay, MacCall, MacCallen, Maccallum, MacCammon, MacCay, MacClay, MacColl, MacCorrie, Macgowan, MacIntyre, Mackay, Mackendrick, Mackenzie, MacKerras, MacKinnon, Maclaine, Maclaren, Macrae, MacRath and Macror families then!

 

And what about the Pac-a-Mac then? They have a case to sue apple surely. We were packing macs over here when Jobs and Wozniak were but twinkles in their fathers eyes. For those that are not sure, a pac-a-mac was a coat that you could wrap up and stuff in a matchbox, which unravels to the size of a football pitch, to keep the rain off.

I don't have an ad with Google for a Mac product, but my guess is that you need to use the single word Mac to trigger the rule.
