Apple loses case to sell iPhone in Mexico

A court ruled that the iPhone name was too closely similar to the Mexican telecommunications company iFone, which registered the name in 2003.  Apple attempted to register “iFone” name in 2009 and wanted the telecommunications company to stop using it.  The tables were turned when the Mexican telecommunications company countersued as they own the trademark for iFone since 2003.  The company won the case and now Apple will have to pay and cannot sell the iPhone in Mexico unless an appeals court overrules the case.
