beaver1024 writes “I doubt if Apple lawyers even contemplated the irony as they slapped a small Australian company producing camping equipment with a lawsuit for trademark violations. Sea to Summit makes a product that assists in the disposal of human excrement calling it iPood. Apple thinks that ‘For obvious reasons, Apple’s reputation for clean design and high-tech electronics will suffer should it be associated with latrines and the like through Sea to Summit’s use of iPood.’ If only Sea to Summit had the resources to fight this in court. Alas, we are witnessing yet another sign of the corrupted nature of IP laws in Australia and internationally.”
