Kia Ora. In stick news today, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But it doesn’t stop the legal battles. Two apple companies, Apple computer and Apple Corps have been fighting in court again recently. Yesterday the winner was announced and it looks like the computer company came out on top.
Apple corps was founded in 1968 by the British rock band the Beatles.
Eight years later, in 1976, Apple computer was founded.
Since then, Apple Corps has been rather grumpy about the computer company’s choice of logo.
The two fruity companies have had several legal fights about the trademarks.
In 1978 Apple computer gave Apple corps $80,000.
In 1989 they gave them $26.5 million.
But this time, the Beatles lost the fight.
The chief executive of Apple Computer said they have always loved the Beatles, and now they want to be friends. Apple Corps said they will appeal the decision.
And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 9th of May.
