Rupert Murdoch Suing The Sky Out Of Skype

With Skype announcing a planned IPO this week, there didn't seem to be that much to comment on. However, people digging through the filing found one previously unknown tidbit that's generating some buzz. Apparently, the Rupert Murdoch-owned satellite broadcasting company BskyB has been involved in a long legal battle with Skype over its name. Apparently, BSkyB thinks anything using the letters "sky" infringes on its trademark. Of course, it's difficult to see how anyone could possibly be confused, but BSkyB claims to have market research that says otherwise, and apparently an EU ruling has agreed -- though Skype is planning to appeal.

This proves the silly season is in full swing.  :gum:

seems Silly Season is getting longer and longer each year...

Wonder how long till they come right around and the ends meet up?
What you think is important is rarely urgent
