As early as August, apple made headlines because it opposed the trademark application for “pear” by the developer of prepear, the main recipe and meal plan app. Apple opposed the proposed trademark of prepear on the ground that it claimed to be similar to Apple’s own logo. Although prepear’s logo only depicts the outline of a pear. < / P > < p > however, apple claimed in the application that the logo & quot; of prepear is composed of a simple fruit design and a right angle leaf, which easily reminds people of Apple’s famous apple logo and produces a similar business impression & quot;. < / P > < p > super healthy kids, the company behind prepear, has launched a petition to persuade apple to abandon its opposition to a small business in an attempt to protect a logo that looks quite different from Apple’s logo. The petition has received more than 250000 signatures. Although apple did not give up its objection, it seems that the dispute could be resolved fairly quickly, as the filing to the trademark trial and appeal board of the U.S. patent and trademark office last week has required the trial proceedings to be suspended for 30 days, as & quot; the two sides are actively negotiating to resolve the matter & quot;. < / P > < p > although the official suspension lasted for 30 days, either party can resume the proceedings at any time. If there is no further information from both parties, the proceedings will resume automatically on January 23. < / P > < p > if no settlement can be reached, the dispute seems to drag on for some time. The preliminary pre-trial disclosure will start in March, the main hearing briefing will start in October, and the possible oral hearing request will not be held until December 2021.
