Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has given up its fight with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) over app stores—specifically, its trademark lawsuit over the name “App Store” for an online store where customers can buy apps. All Things D reported this week that on Tuesday (July 9), after months of settlement talks, Apple finally asked the judge in the case to dismiss the two-year-old lawsuit. There wasn’t much explanation—an Apple spokeswoman grandly pointed to

900,000 apps and 50 billion downloads, while Amazon just said it was relieved the legal ordeal was finally over.

But it’s not really such a mystery. In March 2011, when Apple filed its lawsuit, the iPad was less than a year old and the Kindle, introduced in November 2007, looked like a better-established competitive threat.

    You say App Store, I say Appstore. Apple has decided to call the whole thing off, and has dropped its lawsuit against Amazon for infringing on its trademark for its digital software retail distribution service — see how much easier it is to just say app store? Apple’s lawyers have decided that they don’t need a court to tell them that combining “app” and “store” does not make a unique and distinguishable brand, and that it’s a lost cause to keep people from referring to a store that sells apps as an app store.
