"Apple has embarked on a legal battle over the right to
use the word "pod".
"The row has come about because of a projector called Video Pod
currently being developed by start-up Sector Labs.
"When the dispute first began, Apple said Sector Labs' use of
the word might cause confusion among customers.
"The legal claim to the name will be played out via documents
the two companies will file in a US court over the next month.
"Apple has filed an 873-page briefing paper to the court laying
out its claim to exclusive use of the name."
