Apple Trouble With Germany Bike Path Logo

If you intend to launch any brand that has any resemblance to an apple, it is better to open your eyes. Better proof that Apple doesn't want to see anything that resembles its logo: Germany, the company opposed the logo of a bicycle path in an appeal to the German Patent and Trademark Office, as reported by the websites General-Anzeiger Bonn (Google Translate) and Westdeutscher rundfunk (Google translator).

Apfelroute Logo

The bike path in question is called Apfelroute (something like "Apple Route") and, according to Apple, the logo above closely resembles yours on the green leaf and a supposed "bite" on the right.

The logo was registered in 2018 for such a bike lane that will open in the Rhine-Voreifel region of Germany on May 19 and will be used on uniforms, bike racks, cycling maps, banners, signage and more. Apple has also sent travel agency letters responsible for all this material ordering it to stop wearing the logo, but it is true that at this point in the championship, making any change in this direction is something that weighs heavily on the pocket.

In an official statement, Rhein Voreifel Touristik said: “With Apfelroute, we have a completely different product, and it's unbelievable that such a big company is attacking us.”

Apple, of course, has an obligation to defend its brand. In some cases, however, it seems that the company ends up worrying too much about some that should not be a reason for it. We'll see what those responsible for the case will say.
