[citation][nom]pjmelect[/nom]Apple has a habit of stealing English trademarked names, the name Apple itself was "stolen" from the Beatles.[/citation]
Not just the English and not just trademarks, the iPhone, iPod and iPad were all names in use by other companies

Official name will be "iTelevision" which people will abbreviate on their own to iTV, thus making it completely legal as long as their packaging spells it out. They could easily sell it as iTV elsewhere and phonetically it will sound the same worldwide
