I truly fail to see what the fuss is about. Fujitsu trademarked the name in 2003, but have they released anything under that name?
That's a good point but doesn't the system works the other way?
You must have heard the story about "Pizza.com"
. Some guy registered the name couple of years ago. He never sold any pizza, that's for sure. If i am not mistaking, he sold the dot com name for millions. (I don't remember the exact amount). I am not arguing with you. But a lot of people are doing the same these days. The concerned government/department should take it under consideration to introduce some new laws to prevent these fortune seekers from limiting the options for genuine companies/corporations. I wonder if this is the way the system works. Anyone steps into the office and says: "Hey, i neither I own a business nor i have a product to sell/introduce, but I want to steal this name from the rest of the world." I hope this is not the case.
From experience, we know that big corporations/companies have dedicated staff for different jobs. And almost all the time, they are careful about these issues. That's why we call them "Professionals". In this case, professionalism is yet to be found.
I have no desire for any iPad, but it's always interesting to see how Apple's competitors react to their product launches.
