A little bit of drama, we just received the following message from Apple regarding the freshly released OlloCorrect app.
“On 9/4/2012, we received a notice from Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, LLP that Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, LLP believes the app listed below infringes their intellectual property rights. In particular, Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, LLP believes you are infringing their trademark, keywords and app name. Here are their comments: We are the registered trademark owner for the mark OLLOCLIP. HiLO’s use of OLLOCORRECT will likely cause consumers to mistakenly believe that HiLO is affiliated with Olloclip or that Olloclip endorses HiLO’s “Ollocorrect” product, when it does not.”
Funnily enough we sent an email to Olloclip’s support telling them about our plans to launch an app for correcting lens distortion. They did not reply then. In fact they still have not contacted us.
I guess their plan is to have Apple boot the OlloCorrect app out of the App Store.
What do you think ? Should we change the name ?
