iTunes Music Store

It occurred to me in thinking about the Apple Corps lawsuit against Apple this morning that Apple hasn't used the "Apple" name in the name of its music store, it's called The iTunes Music Store. If you go to the store through iTunes, there isn't an Apple logo to be found in the store interface (although there is one in the iTunes application itself), and no mention of Apple Computer aside from the copyright statement. I suspect that this is intentional, and meant to comply with the spirit of their earlier settlement. Remember that the settlement was about each company's right to use the "Apple" trademark. The wording of the quote from the Apple Corps lawyer in this article made me think about this. Somehow, I doubt very much that there will be any merit to this lawsuit, although there is no way of really knowing without a copy of that earlier settlement.
