On August 8th, 2005, I blogged the following, which I’m updating tonight:
UPDATE: Not so fast, Mr. Jobs!
We brought you the news of the lawsuit, way back in spring 2008, and can now reveal the verdict. Apple has lost the right to call its own-brand Mac mouse the “Mighty Mouse”.
Man & Machine, American medical hardware specialist suppliers, has now been granted the trademark on “Mighty Mouse” from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
In the lawsuit, Man & Machine says Apple began selling its Mighty Mouse over 1 year after it began selling waterproof and chemical resistant mice under the same name in 2004.
Yep: Looks like Man & Machine moved Apple’s cheese!
