Prepear is a meal planner and grocery list app that helps people discover recipes and more. it was born from the blog superhealthykids.com, now they saying its logo is under legal attack from Apple.
On Instagram Super Healthy Kids sharing a post detailing their new legal woes with Apple with asking for help.
Apple “has opposed the trademark application for our small business, Prepear, demanding that we change our obviously pear-shaped logo, used to represent our brand in the recipe management and meal planning business.”According to the founder of Prepear
Prepear goes on to say, “before attacking us, Apple has opposed dozens of other trademark applications filed by small businesses with fruit-related logos. Many of those logos were changed or abandoned. Most small businesses cannot afford the tens of thousands of dollars it would cost to fight Apple.”In a petition on Change.org
Prepear says they are a small company with only five staff and legal costs have already cost them “many thousands of dollars” plus laying off one team member, in their legal fight against the iPhone maker.
The petition has currently reached almost 61,000 signatures, and the founders hope it will reach 75,000.
Prepear says they aren’t asking for a boycott of Apple products, but they are asking the iPhone maker to “stop attacking small businesses like ours in frivolous cases that seem designed to cause us to spend as much money and time thinking about the case instead of focusing on how to grow our business and ensure we survive the current economic crisis.”.
