The legendary rivalry between Microsoft and Apple, is on rages with the use of the term "App Store" with Microsoft claiming that the term is generic and Apple countering that the term is short for "Apple Store." Last week, Apple filed a brief defending their use of App Store.
Microsoft filed a motion with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to strike the iPhone maker's latest filing in the case -- saying that its response to Microsoft's attempt to dismiss the case violated court rules that limit such briefs to 25 pages, and require them to be in at least 11 point font.
"Apple's response brief is 31 pages, including the table of contents and table of authorities, and on information and belief, is printed in less than 11 point font," reads the motion filed by Microsoft.
The company asks the trademark court to require Apple to file a new brief that "complies with the rules and does not add any new matter or arguments."
