    Default Apple, Amazon Resolve ‘App Store’ Lawsuit


    Apple and Amazon have finally ended their controversial "app store" legal war.

    According to new information coming to light Tuesday, both companies are now free to proceed as they were before without legal threats or intervention form the other.

    So who blinked first? It looks like Apple, according to coverage from Reuters.

    Based on a court filing, Apple asked for its complaint to be dismissed after first issuing a “promise to not sue Amazon.”

    U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton in Oakland, California, on Tuesday ordered that the case be dismissed at the companies’ request, averting a trial that had been scheduled for August 19.
    “We no longer see a need to pursue our case,” Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said. “With more than 900,000 apps and 50 billion downloads, customers know where they can purchase their favorite apps.”

    Martin Glick, a lawyer for Amazon, corroborated the news.

    “This was a decision by Apple to unilaterally abandon the case, and leave Amazon free to use ‘appstore,’” Glick says.

    “We’re gratified that the court has conclusively dismissed this case,” Amazon spokeswoman Mary Osako later added. “We look forward to continuing our focus on delivering the best possible appstore experience to customers and developers.”

    And that's all that ever needed to be said.

    Apple dropped it because they knew the whole thing was a joke. Duh.
