Swiss Federal Railways Says Apple Copied Its Iconic Railway Clock, and while my first reaction was “you can copyright a clock?”, it’s really no more odd than copyrighting a black square with rounded corners.
SBB is the sole owner of the trademark and copyright of the railway clock. The railway company will now get in touch with Apple. The aim is a legal, as well as a financial solution. It is not right that one [Apple] simply copies the design.
I don’t know if this will go anywhere, but seems like Apple is clearly in the wrong here, and should pay up or change it, just like they’re making Samsung do for doing exactly the same thing.
