From Ars Technica:

If you can believe it, things are getting serious between two prominent developers of iPhone fart apps, InfoMedia and Air-O-Matic. After some rumbling over shady marketing tactics and a lawsuit threat, a judge is being asked to decide whether a trademark on the phrase "pull my finger" is legitimate.

Tensions have exploded between Air-O-Matic, Inc. and InfoMedia, Inc., two of the hottest names in iPhone flatulence. Air-O-Matic, maker of "Pull My Finger," has complained to Apple, threatened to sue its competitor over "iFart Mobile," and demanded monetary compensation, so InfoMedia is responding via the courts. At the center of this combustible situation? A trademark Air-O-Matic was awarded for the phrase "pull my finger."
