Jul 11, 2001, 16:32 (33 Talkback[s])

Heise Online is reporting that Adobe, while still requiring a name change for KIllustrator, will not be seeking damages.

"Now Adobe explained that it concerns to the enterprise only to protect the trademark laws at its product Adobe Illustrator . One wants not to prevent the spreading of the KIllustrator, but requires only a change of the name of the program. No costs are to arise for the KIllustrator developer. Such a regulation - change of name against retreat of the warning - the Adobe lawyers had however still rejected in the last week in a discussion with dock Uwe upholsterer. Adobe regrets now that the affair in this kind was concerned and that from it annoyance resulted to the KIllustator developer."
