    Here's a pic of the restaurant from the menu I got when I went in to laugh at them after seeing the place for the first time (it opened about a month ago). This happened in Ireland, so it's not the sort of thing you'd expect, like the iPh café on Gizmodo a few days back, which was in Vietnam.

    This next one is the front page of their brochure... They didn't even bother to change the perspective on the logo...

    Look at the footer in this next one, which is the inside of the brochure :)

    Appropriation can make sense...when it makes sense to do so.


    Apples and Chinese food arent my first thoughts.

    They should put "Designed in China, Assembled in Ireland" on the menu. ;)

    Heheh, or "Inspired by China, Made with gluttinous amounts of sugar in Ireland"

    Also, i just noticed, on the front of the menu it says "NEW OPEN!" :D

    You're kidding yourself if you think Apple will waste any time or money attacking a mom n' pop Chinese restaurant in a town with less than 13,000 people in it.

    They won't, though, for the reason Jack mentioned. It wouldn't make any sense, financially, to do so, since the harm to their brand is virtually nil, imo.

    That's quite amusing. There's nothing like originality.

    It ain't a trademark infringement unless Apple has gotten the logo registered as trademark specifically for the class of services/goods that the restaurant is selling, i.e., food.

    Unless Apple is a famous mark. It might not be, however, since its been used in connection with at least one other company.
