Prepare is a meal planning and shopping list app that helps people discover recipes and more. It is a derivative of the founders of Super healthy kids And right now they say that their logo is under legal attack by Apple.
It’s funny the Instagram accounts that you follow as a father at some point. Yesterday we realized Super healthy kids share a post detailing his new legal problems with Apple.
According to the founders, Apple “has opposed the trademark application for our small company, Prepear, demanding that we change our obviously pear-shaped logo, used to represent our brand in the recipe management and meal planning business.” .
In a petition on Change.orgPrepear goes on to say, “Before attacking us, Apple has objected to dozens of other trademark applications filed by small businesses with fruit-related logos. Many of those logos were changed or abandoned. Most small businesses can’t afford the tens of thousands of dollars it would cost to fight Apple. “
Prepear says they are a small company with only five employees and legal costs have already cost them “many thousands of dollars” plus the firing of a team member, in their legal fight against the iPhone maker.
“It is a very scary experience to be legally attacked by one of the largest companies in the world, even when clearly we have not done anything wrong, and we understand why most companies just give up and change their logos,” adds Prepear in his allegation. for support.
Prepear says they “feel a moral obligation to take a stand against Apple’s aggressive legal action against small businesses and fight for the right to keep our logo. We’re defending ourselves against Apple not just to keep our logo, but to send a message to big tech companies that bullying small businesses has consequences. “
So far, just over 8,200 signatures have been signed out of a target of 10,000 in change.org.
Looking at the two logos above, I can’t tell that the Prepear logo looks anything like the Apple logo. But of course Apple feels different about it.
