Apple on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against a company that makes iPhone version kits. The kits basically turn your black iPhone into a white iPhone.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, the lawsuit claims that Fei Lik Lam a/k/a Phillip Lam and whiteiphone4now.com, are “infringing and diluting Apple’s famous trademarks, in willful violation ofthe Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. § 1051 et seq.) and for engaging in deceptive practices and unfair competition in willful violation of New York state Law.”
Apple is not only suing Philip Lam, but also his parents, Dunwah Lam and Yuk Lam who they allege “aided and abetted Defendant Lam in his willful infringement of Apple’s trademarks by allowing Defendant Lam to engage in the misconduct alleged herein and under their supervision.”
Apple is seeking all of the profits the Lam’s made from the business while infringing on Apple’s trademark. They are also seeking damages and court costs.
The company’s Web site is down and Apple filed for a voluntary dismissal of the case. As Mac Rumors points out, this could mean that Apple has reached a settlement in the case.
Update: Added info about the voluntary dismissal.
