Apple's been trying to stop Amazon's use of "Appstore" since its inception. Unfortunately for them, the federal judge presiding over the case said that Apple's difficulty in presenting evidence of customer confusion will likely lead to her denying the motion

Really the only confusing aspect of all this is how Apple could possibly believe they own the rights to the words "App Store." That would be like Wal Mart trying to trademark "Mart." [Business Week].
