‘App Store’ is not your word, for now
  A US judge denied Apple’s preliminary injunction against Amazon, which would make the latter stop using the name ‘App Store’. The issue will be resolved starting October 2012, when the next trial date has been set, leaving Amazon free to use the name by that date.

The injunction has been dismissed due to Apple not establishing likelihood of confusion in its examples. However, although the judge did not agree that the term is entirely generic, she admittedly had been skeptical of Apple winning the case.
