Apple, the trillion-dollar giant has sued a small company called Prepare, a kids planning company, claiming its logo is as same as the Apple logo.

The Prepear’s logo is a pear-shaped logo.


According to details, Apple has claimed that the company is affecting its business despite not being in the same line of operations.

Taking to its Instagram account, Prepear responded to Apple by saying,

“This is a big blow to us at Prepear. To fight this it will cost tens of thousands of dollars. The CRAZY thing is that Apple has done this to dozens of other small business fruit logo companies, and many have chosen to abandon their logo or close doors.”

It went on to write,

“I’m not trying to get anyone to stop using or buying Apple products. I feel a moral obligation to take a stand against Apple’s aggressive legal action against small businesses and fight for the right to keep our logo.”

It concluded by saying,

“We are defending ourselves against Apple not only to keep our logo but to send a message to big tech companies that bullying small businesses has consequences.”

Please help! Many of you know I started Prepear almost 5 years ago. It is an app that you can store all your recipes in one place, plan your meals, make grocery lists, and get your groceries delivered all in one place. Recently Apple, Yes, trillion dollar Apple, has decided to oppose and go after our small business trademark saying our pear logo is too close to their apple logo and supposedly hurts their brand? This is a big blow to us at Prepear. To fight this it will cost tens of thousands of dollars. The CRAZY thing is that Apple has done this to dozens of other other small business fruit logo companies, and many have chosen to abandon their logo, or close doors. While the rest of the world is going out of their way to help small businesses during this pandemic, Apple has chosen to go after our small business. I’m not trying to get anyone to stop using or buying Apple products. I feel a moral obligation to take a stand against Apple’s aggressive legal action against small businesses and fight for the right to keep our logo. We are defending ourselves against Apple not only to keep our logo, but to send a message to big tech companies that bullying small businesses has consequences.
