Cisco LogoAs time elapsed on Apple's deadline to respond to Cisco's trademark lawsuit over use of the word "iPhone" Apple requested and was granted an extension.

ZDNet blogger Ed Burnette got this quote from Cisco:

Apple has asked Cisco for another extension on the deadline for Apple to respond to our lawsuit. Cisco has agreed to give Apple an extension until Wednesday, Feb. 21. Cisco is fully committed to using the extra time to reach a mutually beneficial resolution.

The extension is only five days - three if you're counting business days - so you can guess what Apple legal is doing this weekend.

Can't we all just get along

  • This should be straight forward

    Does Cisco have a product using the iPhone name, NO.
    Does Cisco intend to have a product using the iPhone name, NO.
    To bad Cisco, you didn't use it, now loose it.

    We must get rid of this kind of crap and specifically software patents.
    This kind of crap shows the ignorance of our government patent agency.

    Next thing you know someone will have a patent for storing a file in a directory.

  • Squabble

    The use of the word 'squabble' puts into question the legitimacy of Cisco's legal position.

    Would it be a 'squabble' if someone were to infringe on Apple's licensing or trademarks???

    Or, more like a 'bludgeoning'? ;)

    Bueler?
