Amazon copies AppleCare trademark verbatim

Janko Roettgers:

Now that’s a coincidence, if there ever was any: Earlier this month, Amazon filed for two trademarks for extended warranty and servicing under the Kindle brand. Turns out that the description of these services was lifted verbatim from Apple’s AppleCare trademarks.

Surely they could have come up with their own wording.

    This is how copyists get caught. The little things. It shows they are running photocopiers, not making their own things.

      You mean like the clock Apple lifted from Swiss Railways?

        not at all the same. that was a failure to ensure licenses were sought, but involved completely custom implementation of the design. amazon simply copy-and-pasted the text, which means no work done at all. thats photocopying.

        details matter.
