Dell Challenges Psion on Netbook Trademark
The Netbook naming wars just heated up a bit, but I’m guessing the lawyers still want to make some money out of this. Dell has entered he fray and has filed a Petition to Cancel essentially saying that Psion Teklogix has abandoned the use of its trademark, and also throwing in a fraud charge as well. Apparently someone at Psion said they were selling everything in the trademark application in 2006 and Dell says they weren’t.
The Save the Netbook campaigners think this might be over, but I wouldn’t get too excited just yet as these things tend to go through all sorts of wrinkles before a victor is declared and the legal fees divided up.
Here’s a link (PDF) to the Dell Petition.
