Don’t worry. You read that title right. According to Polish website Telepolis, Apple is suing the online Polish grocery store a.pl. Apple says that the name a.pl can create confusion and take away from the search results to apple.com. Really Apple? When I searched Apple on google, nothing in the first ten pages was about the Polish grocery store and when I searched a.pl on Google, nothing Apple related came up within the first ten pages either.
I can see Apple might have an argument if they think that stock traders may get a.pl confused with the Apple stock symbol AAPL, but I highly doubt that traders will be puzzled between a polish grocery store and one of the most valuable companies in the world. I think Apple’s power has gone to their head. Shouldn’t they be a little bit more concerned about the iPhone 5 that’s supposed to come out on Wednesday, than a small online grocery store that does home deliveries?
