After a resounding victory over Samsung, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is redirecting its wrath at Polish online grocery website A.pl.
On Tuesday, the Polish patent office said the iPhone maker had filed a complaint against A.pl for copying one of its icons in its logo.
“Apple brand is widely recognized and the company says that A.pl, by using the name that sounds familiar, is using Apple’s reputation,” patent office spokesman Adam Taukert said.
A.pl CEO Radoslaw Celinski called the accusation “ludicrous.” His firm, which is currently not using the Logo in question, is looking into Apple’s complaint.
If the case makes it to trial, Apple could crush the relatively small grocery company, which begs the question, why is Apple becoming such a bully?
Lawsuits against tech companies like Samsung are at least justified in the sense that they directly compete with Apple. But a Polish grocery website certainly poses no competition, and any damages awarded to Apple would be negligible for the tech giant, but could cripple A.pl.
