Insanity(TM): Apple Claims Ownership of Leaf Shape

From TUAW:

Apple not happy with food company’s logo

Apple is accusing a Chinese food company of trademark infringement over its fruit-themed logo. The Sichuan Fangguo Food Co., Ltd. uses a round red logo with a stem and leaf. Apple claims this logo borrows conceptual elements, specifically the leaf, from its logo.

Apple wants Fanggou to remove the leaf from its logo, also a representation of a type of apple, but it has refused, noting that “it’s a fruit, if the leaf is removed, it’ll just look like a bomb.”
