Asked in Intellectual Property for Louisiana

Q: I received a mail from Kilpatrick Townsend about infringement of Apple’s intellectual property.

I received a mail from Kilpatrick Townsend about infringement of Apple’s intellectual property. I have an android app which uses Dark Sky company's weather data by formal way (I make payment every month for using Dark Sky data). But the Dark Sky company is bought by Apple in 2020. My weather app's name is "Dark Sky Data & Storm Tracker" Kilpatrick Townsend tells me using "Dark Sky Data" in Play Store is infringement of Apple’s intellectual property. Main idea of using Dark Sky is to get users who is searching for Dark Sky Weather app. So are they right? What should I do?
