Apple accused of copying trademarked railway clock design
Apple is known for chasing everyone and anyone who seems to be free-riding on their design. However, this time, Apple might have to defend itself against a possible trademark infringement claim by the Swiss Federal Railway Service (SBB). Apple is allegedly using a copy of the SBB’s railway clock in the IOS 6 for the iPad. The design was created by an SBB employee back in 1944 and is now owned by the SBB. This issue comes up a few weeks after Apple won the infringement lawsuit against Samsung, accusing the latter of copying some design elements of the iPhone. I can only say – what goes around, comes around.
