Man and Machine, a Maryland-based input devices company is suing both Appleand CBS over the use of the name Mighty Mouse.
"This action arises from Apple's use and proposedcontinued use of the trademark 'Mighty Mouse' in violation of M&M's rightsin its own 'Mighty Mouse' trademark," the complaint states. "Apple'suse of the 'Mighty Mouse' trademark takes place under color of an agreementwith CBS purporting to license such use."
Waterproof mouse
Man & Machine has been selling its Mighty Mouse since March2004, which it describes as a "waterproof optical mouse for medical,industrial, and marine applications,".
Man and Machine is basing its case on their claim the name of Mighty Mouse belongsto them in the context of computer peripherals.
Apple began selling it’s (rather good) Mighty Mouse for its computers inAugust 2005.
One has to question why Man and Machine has taken three years to bring thecase to court.
