The long standing debate about iPhone naming rights in Canada was finally resolved. According to a report published in newspaper Globe and Mail yesterday, Apple reached a settlement with Canadian VoIP provider Comwave to have exclusive use of the trademark in Canada.
Comwave will phase out the use of the iPhone trademark in November 2008. And since it’s been in use since 2004 in Canada — while Comwave demonstrated willingness to go to court over the matter — the settlement must have been good.
Comwave representatives were not available for comments at the time of writing.
