Apple is set to launch its Apple Watch in the United States and selected nations later this month, however one territory it may not have the ability to launch its brand-new wrist watch is Switzerland – – the house of the high-end watch.
The revelation comes from broadcaster RTS which declares that Leonard Timepieces has a trademark that prevents any kind of wrist watch from being offered that is related to words ‘apple.’ Something would not surprisingly prove troublesome for the Apple Watch’s release in the country, possibly indicating the the device could not arrive on Swiss coasts until the patent expires. That occurs on December 5th.
Apple isn’t really new to such legal issues when introducing new products though. When the iPhone wased initially launched, Cisco already had a device that had a similar scourge and was not surprisingly trademarked. Both involved a compromise within a concern of days, presumably with a significant amount of cash money changing hands. Cisco’s device went away from record as a result.
It’s possible a similar offer might happen here, specifically if Apple does not see postponing its Apple Watch launch in Switzerland as a practical alternative.
Bearing in mind that no one would be shocked to view Apple come to a take care of Leonard Timepieces, we wouldn’t compose a Swiss Apple Watch launch in 2015 off completely. This is Apple, nevertheless.
Somewhere else, the Apple Watch goes up for pre-order following week on the 10th while the watch really goes on sale 2 weeks later April 24th. Those in Switzerland might have to hang around a little while just before they could partake in some Apple Watch fun, yet don’t be startled if it’s considerably earlier than December 5th.
