RE: Statements against

So tell me when I type in the word "apple" where exactly do I
want to go?

Apple Records, of course (sez an old hippie).

On the TM front, Apple Computer only retains their name because of a
contingent agreement with Apple Records, the primary trademark-holder of the
term "Apple". Apple Computer is prohibited from entering the music recording
and distribution business.

Wow, does this mean that Apple could never support Napster or MP3.ORG?

Yes, but remember the "personal name" exception cases.

Perhaps Fiona Apple will claim that name.

And she's in music. Ooops, conflict with Apple Records.
