Apple won a legal victory yesterday when the European Court of Justice ruled it could trademark the layout of its stores, just as it has in the US.

But how does that work?

The legal standard in question—whether a consumer could reasonably mistake our office for an Apple store—isn’t going to be met. But more importantly, Apple’s US trademark, officially granted last year, is the result of a nearly three-year process of refinement to ensure that it wouldn’t protect functional items (i.e., you can’t trademark tables in your store) and that, altogether, it comprises a unique identity.

One of the big debates regarding iBeacons, the tech that allows iOS apps to receive location-aware notifications over Bluetooth LE, is whether or not the experience will become intrusive for users. Imagine having your local grocery store’s app installed. Once the store has installed a few beacons, you could soon find yourself overcome with notifications as you walk around without ever even opening the app. You run the risk of users getting frustrated and potentially avoiding or deleting the app entirely. However, that hasn’t been the case when it comes to the iBeacons installed by inMarket in grocery stores across the country - app and ad engagement has skyrocketed since rolling out the platform.

The World Cup of eCommerce: Are You Playing?

The World Cup is a global goliath, with the capacity to unite nations and their people around a common cause – soccer (or futbol, depending on where you’re reading this!) There are very few events with the ability to reach an audience of this size, all of which are attentive and engaged due to the love of the game. With such an exorbitant level of engagement from the fans themselves, the World Cup also presents a profound opportunity for eCommerce retailers to capitalize on the excitement and camaraderie of the competition through online sales.
