Do these logos look alike to you? Apple preparing legal action

Apple is taking legal action against the developers of the meal planner and grocery list app “Prepear” due to its logo, according to iPhone in Canada

C’mon, Apple, really? Pictured is the Prepare logo, along with Apple’s. Who’s going to confuse the two!?

iPhone in Canada says that, according to the Prepare developers, Apple “has opposed the trademark application for our small business, Prepear, demanding that we change our obviously pear shaped logo, used to represent our brand in the recipe management and meal planning business.”

In a petition on, Prepear goes on to say, “before attacking us, Apple has opposed dozens of other trademark applications filed by small businesses with fruit related logos. Many of those logos were changed or abandoned. Most small businesses cannot afford the tens of thousands of dollars it would cost to fight Apple.”
