An interesting Apple/Podcasting story…
“A German court, at the request of Apple Computer, has temporarily barred a Stuttgart technology company from marketing its brand “Spod” for a cell phone podcasting service, according to the German company’s executives.
Liquid Air Lab has been offering a service since late last year that provides broadband-capable mobile phone users with access to radio shows, music downloads, ring tones, and other services.
The company had registered the brand names “spod” and “spodradio” for its services. In a press release, executives said that Apple asked a court to block Liquid Air from marketing its service under those names, and that a Hamburg court issued a preliminary injunction in the computer maker’s favor.”
