Re: FreedomScientific, Inc. Asked to Cease Lawsuit Against Serotek Corporation

Dan, the Scarlet Wombat, mentioned a trademark case filed by McDonald's. In fact, McDonald's has filed several, and it's instructive to see why they won some and lost others. Wikipedia has an article on the subject, though it should be noted many statements it contains are not sourced:

I believe Darrell's petition may do harm. Many of FS's customers have legitimate criticisms of its technical service, the recurrence of old software defects, and so on. This petition is frivolous and based on ignorance, and it may cause management to take the community of individual blind consumers less seriously. Remember, FS undoubtedly makes most money not from individuals, but the government, rehab agencies and other institutions. We need to speak intelligently on matters where we actually know what we're talking about if we want to be heard.
