Apple Inc. vs. the Big Apple

of

It looks like some lawyers will be spending the rest of the year comparing apples to apples.

On Thursday, Apple Inc. mounted a legal challenge to the logo trademark application of GreeNYC, New York City's campaign to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030. Apple Inc. and the Big Apple both used stylized apples in their emblems; Apple argues that the two images are similar enough to create confusion among shoppers.

I'd hate to see anyone accidentally confuse a computer company with a major metropolis, so, as a public service, I'm providing this guide to help you tell the difference.
