Cisco owns trademark for iPhone

Quote:
"Cisco entered into negotiations with Apple in good faith after Apple repeatedly asked permission to use Cisco's iPhone name," said Mark Chandler, Cisco senior vice president and general counsel, in a statement. "There is no doubt that Apple's new phone is very exciting, but they should not be using our trademark without our permission."

Cisco is seeking injunctive relief to prevent Apple from copying Cisco's iPhone trademark.
Yikes. I'd have thought they would have nailed this down prior to the Macworld expo. neye: Seems uncharacteristically sloppy.
