for Apple, but the Touch trademark actually belongs to HTC. So what’s
HTC going to do about it? Nothing, they’re going to be nice about the
whole trademark infringement issue until they see how it affects them.
While many can differentiate the two I imagine this would make looking
up for information on the two products just that much more difficult.
Wang (transliterated from Chinese), marketing manager of HTC pointed
out that he does not think Apple's iPod touch was targeting HTC since
Apple should put its focus on bigger companies like Google, Yahoo and
Microsoft. As for whether iPod touch violates HTC's trademark, Wang
pointed out that in the past Apple and Cisco were able to reach a
mutually satisfactory agreement over the rights to the iPhone trademark,
adding that the question surrounding the rights to the Touch trademark
would need further observation.
