Apple Store Helping To Enforce "Candy" Trademark?

Just so you know, filing for a trademark on "candy" is a dick move. Thanks to Jeff Tanks for the link.

When Hsu contacted King.com, expecting an apology for the mistake, their paralegal answered him, "Your use of CANDY SLOTS in your app icon uses our CANDY trade mark exactly, for identical goods, which amounts to trade mark infringement and is likely to lead to consumer confusion and damage to our brand. The addition of only the descriptive term ‘SLOTS’ does nothing to lessen the likelihood of confusion."
