Another day, another Apple lawsuit. Today the company has decided GetJar, the innocuous Lithuanian website home to mountains of free apps (including, most recently, the awesome "Cut the Rope"), must go on their s***t list for, you know, including the words "app store" somewhere on their site. Because Apple users apparantly have no ability to recognize the difference between Apple and Android app stores. 

GetJar has fired back at Apple with a blog post entitled "We're not gonna take it!" defending the company against Apple's bullying tactics.

We’re not going to “Cease & Desist”. We were here long before Steve & Co. We were built by developers, to help developers. Not to help sell handsets or search results. In the words of Twisted Sister: We’re not going to take it! Steve Jobs isn’t our Dad.

I can't believe this is happening again, even after Apple's suit against Amazon was struck down for failing to prove that the words "app store," weren't just a description of, you know, an app store. To supportGetJar, you can join their Facebook page here
