That was quick… This is a case of the right hand not talking to the left hand….
A legal battle over iPhone application software appears to have ended almost as soon as it began. A lawyer representing Cartier International N.V. late Friday said it is withdrawing a suit the company filed earlier in the day against Apple Inc. The suit alleged that two applications for the iPhone infringed on the trademark for the luxury brand’s Tank watches. The applications have been removed from Apple’s App Store. “Our concerns have been addressed,” said Jonathan Lagarenne, the attorney for Fox Rothschild LLD representing Cartier. An Apple spokeswoman said it had been informed that Cartier was withdrawing the suit. – from WSJ
