Effort Underway To Save The Netbook Name
from the good-for-them dept
It looks like some are fed up with this, and have begun a campaign to Save the Netbooks, noting that the name has reached a point that it's generic, and that the success of the term has nothing to do with Psion, but is entirely separate from Psion. The group points to a legal analysis of why Psion probably has no right to the term, and wants to drum up more support to get Psion to stop its misuse of trademark law. No one buying a "netbook" today is confused and thinking they're buying an old Psion product. It's about time that Psion back down and give up the term. After all... they already gave up the term a while ago. Trying to reclaim it now is simply trying to grab the value that was built by others.
