iPhone 5 fever is in the air as we count down the months until October when it is hoped that we will see Apple reveal the latest incarnation of their smartphone. The iPhone is so popular in China that according to ChinaHush, in the Shenyang Liaoning Province one of the most popular ice creams with students is the iPhone 5 ice cream
iPhone 5 and Ice Cream Sandwich together at last? well not exactly
Not to be mistaken for Android Ice Cream Sandwich (or maybe that is what they want too), the cost of the 'iPhone 5' is only 1 yuan and it appears that, just like the iPhone, it is a best seller; however the shop owner said that the ice cream doesn’t taste of anything special. While this is only an ice cream, it does have the name of one of the most well-known handsets, so is this an infringement on copyright?
Apple has not registered the iPhone trademark in the food sector and so producing an iPhone 5 ice cream does not go against copyright infringement in China.
The ice cream not only takes the iPhone 5 name but is also in the shape of the logo used by Apple, an apple with the bite out of it. Maybe the makers of the ice cream should have made it taste of Apple too.
