Cisco Calls IPhone Suit "minor skirmish"


Cisco's lawsuit against Apple over the use of the name iPhone is a "minor skirmish" that could have been avoided if Apple had been willing to negotiate, the International Herald Tribune reported on Thursday.

"We told Apple for five years, 'This is our trademark. We'll license it to you, but it is ours,"' Chambers said in an interview with the newspaper carried on The New York Times' Web site.

"All we ask is that people respect our trademarks and our intellectual property," he told the paper. "We would have traded that for just interoperability," or the ability of the Apple phone to work smoothly with Cisco products.

Cisco owns the iPhone trademark and sued Apple after it announced that its cell phone-iPod combination product would be called the iPhone as well.

Apple had been difficult to do business with, Chambers also said, according to the International Herald Tribune.

On a separate topic, Chambers said Cisco's most likely competitors in the future would come out of Asia, especially China, according to the International Herald Tribune.

He also said Cisco was looking to Asia for technology skills and acquisition targets, the paper reported.
