Managers of the Mexican Telecommunications company IFone hold an informal meeting at their headquarters in Mexico City, on November 5, 2012. The telecommunications firm named iFone has declared victory in a trademark battle with Apple's iPhone, exposing the US company to a potential compensation payment, according to a statement released by the Mexican company this weekend. The Mexican firm said in a statement that a court denied Apple's bid to protect the iPhone name in a case that began in 2009, when iFone sued the California-based company because the similar-sounding names caused confusion.AFP PHOTO/OMAR TORRES (Photo credit should read OMAR TORRES/AFP/Getty Images)
