Lindows to unveil new new next week

Posted on Wednesday, April 07 2004 @ 13:18:48 CEST by

Lindows has confirmed that it will unveil a new name next week to ensure that the company can do business globally. Currently Lindows is in a legal dispute with Microsoft regarding the Windows trademark.

Lindows new name will only be used outside the US, until they can battle for the right to use Lindows internationally. The name will be revealed on 14 April.
Lindows said that its US corporate name will remain Lindows Inc because it has "meaningful name recognition and product distribution".

Robertson said in a statement: "Outside the US we will go by a different name until we can battle for the right to use Lindows internationally.

"The US case will probably take a year to go through the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and perhaps another year for possible Supreme Court review.

"Our plan is to go to trial in the US as soon as possible, at which time we hope to get 'windows' declared a generic word."

"Since we have thousands of web pages and more than 100 servers it will take considerable time to completely transition," said Robertson.

"The functionality in our product will not change, but outside the US people will know our products by a different name."
