You mean apart from the fact that Apple Records sued Apple Computers for
several million dollars and lost? ;-)

According to news articles a few months back, they had a deal that Apple
Records thought Apple Computers broke when they entered the music business
with iTunes and iPod.

Regarding trademarks on the name Rockbox, the german site rockbox-lounge.com
has got a C&D-letter from a german company which seems to own the German
trademarks for "Rock Box" and "Rock-box".
