I guess that was my confusion as well, HLW. If you have the trademark registered and not just pending, there may be a simple procedure with apple (showing them an approved trademark from the USPTO). If you need to, it sounds like you would have a viable trademark enforcement suit. At the very least, you could use the attorney yo worked with to file a demand letter, basically demanding the offending party to cease and desist. See if that scares them off before filing a complaint, which is more costly.
