CNET News.com: Cobalt may sue Apple over Cube rightsJul 29, 2000, 16:38 (1 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Stephen Shankland)
"Cobalt Networks, maker of a Linux server called the Qube, apparently is considering legal action against Apple Computer over Apple's new G4 Cube."
"Cobalt representatives wouldn't comment on whether the company was considering a suit. The possibility of legal action is a "reasonable conclusion," though, given the fact that the company isn't denying the possibility, chief operating officer Gary Martell said in an interview today."
"Given Cobalt's history, a suit likely would take issue with the name, rather than the shape, of the computers. Cube Computer filed a suit against Cobalt in December 1998, alleging that Cobalt's Qube infringed on the trademark of Cube Computer."
