Kein eiPott Für Sie! German Court Backs Apple Copyright

A German court issued a restraining order at the behest of Apple against German company Koziol ordering the company to stop selling an egg holder called eiPott (say it out loud if you need to). The judge ordered the company to change the name and packaging on the product because customers might mistake it for one of Apple’s products.

The court’s ruling noted that eiPott, “is an artificial word created [by Koziol] and [an] unusual addition to refer to an egg cup.”

BZiPhone reported (Google Translation) that Koziol plans to change the name, but as of this writing it is still available at the company’s Web site for €7.50 ($9.53).
