Caught in the Middle of a iPhone Threeway
Just when you thought the iPhone trademark war was simple, in comes another player into the fray. Apparently, it was Comwave Telecom Inc, a Toronto based company which claims they have used the iPhone name even before Cisco. Although Cisco has held the trademark since 2000, in Canada, things are different. In Canada, it takes 3 to play doubles tennis, bacon is ham and the first person to use a term, owns it. Which means that Comwave, who has been using the term, iPhone since 2004 owns the rights to the name in Canada.
