The arguments in court revolved around the use by the brothers of the Apple trademark. But then, there is a chunk bitten off of it just as with the Apple logo. The company's logo is a large J with a bite taken out of the left side, in a not-so-subtle reference to the Apple logo you know and love.

Well, now those different-thinking chickens have come home to roost as Apple has to sit back and watch Steve Jobs jeans take Europe by storm. The court decided that the brothers could use the "bite" mark on the "J" was not a bite because letters are not edible. They had spent years designing clothing products for other brand names, but they chose to begin the process of setting up their own clothing company after becoming fed up with producing products for others.More news: NJ Gov.
