The Netbook Naming Wars: Intel Sues Psion
Looks like Dell has some company in fighting with Psion over the Netbook name trademark issue. Intel has finally spoken out and it is in the form of a lawsuit against Psion. I guess this is a matter of timing, as Engadget says that Intel filed its suit prior to Dell’s. Even so, the claims are essentially the same that the term Netbook has become generic and Psion has been out of production since 2003.
Let’s just hope the legal fees don’t have an effect on prices.
