It appears that Apple has engaged in some copying of its own in the form of the new clock icon design used in iOS 6 on the iPad – a rather ironic turn of events given that Apple railed against Samsung for copying its own iOS icons.
What you’re looking at on the left is Apple’s new clock design. On the right is a Hans Hilfiker design to which both the trademark and copyright is owned by the Swiss Federal Railways service.
Needless to say, the Swiss Federal Railways service (SBB) isn’t too pleased with Apple’s actions.
Speaking to Reuters, SBB spokesman Reto Kormann said that the two companies need to come to some sort of legal agreement regarding Apple’s use of the iconic design.
