I'm not going to voice my opinion on this or any other recent trade-mark
bitching, so I'll be brief. But I thought a few of you would be
interested in this.

In short, Creative Labs, the company that makes Sound Blaster cards among
other things, has forced Goo Software, a startup anti-spam software
company, out of business, because they believed that "SPAM-Blaster" (the
name of the software) was infringing on their trademark sound card names.
