Tiger Direct sues Apple to halt Tiger

Tiger Direct appears to be shameless. One day before the slated release of Mac OS X Tiger, they have decided that Apple is infringing on their trademark. The claim does indeed have merit, but the timing certainly doesn’t. The Mac OS X Tiger name was announced a long time ago, and I’m sure that Tiger Direct had heard of it before this week.

They’re just hoping for a cushy settlement, given Apple’s billions in cash.
