Apple decided in August to take legal action against a company called Prepear. Although the company has nothing to do with technology, he tried to register a pear-shaped logo – and this, of course, bothered Apple. However, it appears that the two companies are coming to an agreement on the logo.
Prepear is a derivation of the Super healthy children service and offer healthy recipes and a digital grocery list through a mobile app. Prepear’s logo is basically an outline of a pear, which led Apple to accuse the company of repeating its classic logo, which consists of a ‘minimalist fruit design with a rectangular leaf’.
Apple does not appear to be willing to give up the dispute, but the two companies are now negotiating before any other legal action. As noted by MacRumors, applied to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Trial and Appeals Committee last week to suspend the trial for 30 days.
The parties are actively negotiating to resolve this issue. Apple Inc. request that this process be suspended for 30 days so that the parties can continue their settlement efforts.
It is unclear what terms Apple is trying to negotiate with Prepear, but the legal dispute will be resumed automatically if the two companies do not reach an agreement on January 23, 2021. If that happens, the first hearings are expected to take place in March 2021. while the main trial will only take place in October.
