"A software integration company that recently registered the name Linux as a trademark with German patent authorities has now reportedly made moves to withdraw the request."
"Hamburg-based Channel One GmbH is in the process of having its claim to the name Linux in Germany deleted, according to Achim Cloer, the chairman of Germany's Linux Association, a user group."
"The German Linux Association's lawyer, Rainer Feldkamp, has been in touch with Channel One founder Roy Boldt about withdrawing the registration, Cloer said. Feldkamp also represents the interests of Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, in Europe."
