The egg holder was dubbed EIPOTT. Ei means egg in German. The circular “control panel” was concaved so you could put your egg in its place. On its “screen” you could put some salt. Although meant as an honest parody, Apple was not amused at all. Apple claimed that the EIPOTT brought serious damage to the reputation of her well known trademark IPOD. The judge decided that although the idea of the EIPOTT was quite funny, it did infringe Apple’s trademark rights. Koziol had to pay penalties of up to € 250,000 for each day the infringement continues and any further use of the name EIPOTT was expressly prohibited. Koziol will appeal the decision.
