Apple Turnover

So Apple is gathering the posturing attorneys to protect the term iPod: Podcast Ready has been served with a 'cease and desist' letter, saying that the terms "'podcast ready' and 'mypodder' consist in substantial part of Apple's iPod mark, and contain Apple's POD mark in its entirety."

Lots of discussion on the Yahoo podcast board - not everyone things that Apple will get away with this. After all, "podcasting" and "podcast" are words that entered the English language before Apple released iPod.

Keep watching - this could get interesting. See the letter from Apple here.
