We posted earlier about Apple copying – without consent – an iconic clock design of the Swiss Railways (SBB). The matter has now been settled.
The SBB issued a press release stating both parties have reached an agreement on the use of the SBB station clock on devices like iPad and iPhone. Apple and SBB have entered into a licence agreement. The amount of the license fee as well as other details about the agreement have not been disclosed.
SBB already made clear initially that they were flattered by Apple’s use of the railway station clock, designed for the Swiss national raiways in 1944 by Hans Hilfiker. Now that consent is given and, undoubtedly, fair compensation is paid, we can go further with our lives.
We, the trademark attorneys, that is.
