This could be interesting, whatever the merits of the case may or may not 
be. It took years and years for Steve Jobs' Apple, Inc. and the Beatles' 
Apple Corp. to sort this out, and I've forgotten just what the final 
agreement was. I do remember that Apple (of Cupertino, Calif.) was 
successful in getting the people who distribute that podcatcher to change 
its name from Ipodder to Juice. It's a fair guess that the company with the 
deepest pockets to sustain such litigation is likely to win something like 
this. Not inevitably, but still likely.

Hello Cindy,

They're suing over Serotek's use of the term "FreedomBox" claiming that its
similarity causes confusion, among other things.  A full plain text copy of
the complaint is available on my blog.
