A judge has denied a request by computer retailer TigerDirect for a preliminary injunction against Apple Computer over allegations that Apple’s nickname for its new operating system, "Tiger," infringes on the retailer’s trademarked name.
The ruling was part of a 56 page opinion handed down on May 11th by Judge Joan Lenard of the United States District Court for the District of Florida. After weighing arguments from both sides, the Court found that "there is greater risk of damage to Apple from granting the injunction than any potential harm to TigerDirect from Apple’s use of Tiger marks."
