Chinese clothing brand sues Apple over its App Store logo

Another day, another lawsuit. Apple is being sued for its App Store logo by a Chinese clothing brand called Kon that has a similar logo, according to Phone Radar — as noted by The Verge.

Its logo (above) is a triangle of skeleton bones that symbolizes power over death. Apple changed its App Store logo in August from a paintbrush, pencil, and a ruler, to three sticks (below) with rounded ends that overlap each other to form a triangle.

The Chinese clothing brand says Apple’s new App Store logo used on iPhones and macOS is a violation of Chinese copyright law. KON is demanding Apple publicly apologize and pay damages.
