Hello Gary,
I live in Florida and do remember something about DBS testing new products. As we know, much of FS revenue comes from vocational-rehabilitation agencies
and that might be part of the reason for this suit.
Take care,
John

Ted,

Actually, Freedom Scientific was formed in April of 2000, and Serotek was
founded in November of 2001, according to their Web pages.  However, FS
didn't seem too interested in them until recently.  Maybe FS got a little
nervous when Serotek invaded their home turf.  In February of this year,
Serotek announced that the Florida Division of Blind Services was testing
their remote access solutions.  Maybe Yardbird's comment about the big dog
marking its territory wasn't too far off the mark.

And I'll bet the other company was already around when the
conglomerate chose its present name.  That's almost as dumb as Nextel
trying to take a patent on the phrase "push to talk."  CB'ers, hams,
and users of virtually every other public and private radio service
are still guffawing about that one, as the phrase is just about as old
as the microphone.

The other company, Serotek, have long made a rival screen reader,
Freedom Box:

http://www.freedombox.info/

The text of Freedom Scientific's complaint has been made available at:

http://www.shandrow.com/fs_vs_serotek_complaint.txt

Basically, they're claiming that the word "Freedom" in "Freedom Box"
could lead people to believe the product is created by Freedom
Scientific.
