    Why not?
    I suppose that depends on your point of view. I desise Dell tech support, but that's just my bad experience with them, that's all.

    Google could sue Youview and win

    Youview sounds too much like Youtube

    PROJECT CANVAS managers were no doubt happy as could be when they launched the Internet telly service and let the world know it will be called Youview.
    Formerly known as Project Canvas, Youview is a partnership between the BBC, ITV, BT, Channel 4, Talktalk, Arqiva and Five to provide a free-to-air, web-connected TV service via a set-top box.
    Unfortunately for it, the Intellectual Property Owner's web site has a page detailing the ownership of the Youview brand with 'Notice of threatened opposition' filed on 16 September. Google refused to confirm or deny that it had instigated the notice of threatened opposition. The INQUIRER contacted Youview for comment, but it had not replied at the time of publication.
    Legal experts think that Google could launch a trademark action against Youview because its name is similar and punters who buy products from PC World or Currys might not be able to distinquish between the two. (:rofl:)
    Robin Fry, an intellectual property partner at the law firm Beachcroft LLP, said that the service name's similarity to Youtube could cause consumers to confuse the two brands. The use of the word 'You' might suggest a connection between the services. If Google did object, it would be highly likely to win a legal action, according to Fry.
    "Google is involved in litigation all over the world, and would not be frightened of taking action against this trademark. It has an clear interest in protecting its trademarks to stop them from being diluted," he said. µ

    That's not quite as bad as Apple trying to trademark the word "Pod" for music devices. :facepalm:
