Here's one where the little guy was in the right…

RIM forced to change name of software

BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion has been forced to change the name of its new operating system from BBX after the company lost a trademark ruling.
The name change is the latest in a string of bad news for the Canadian company.
RIM said in a statement Wednesday that "BlackBerry 10" will be the new brand name for its next generation mobile platform. Analysts say RIM's future depends on a successful launch of the new platform which RIM dubbed BBX in October.
A U.S. federal court judge in Albuquerque, New Mexico, banned RIM from using the BBX name at a conference being held in Singapore this week after finding that software company Basis International Ltd. had registered and used the trademark for 26 years.
RIM said the new name builds on the established BlackBerry brand. BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis called the forced name change yet another misstep by RIM…

It's an outrageous injustice that things like this can happen in a democratic society. I was so mad watching the video I nearly cancelled my Stumpjumper order.

Yup that is the main reason I bought it. FSR design works best for me. I may not like how Specialized uses their muscle in this industry but they make some top notch bikes. I would not refuse to ride/own a Demo just because it is Specialized.

Sun is shining and Eagle Ridge is waiting for me to submit my FSR to field testing.

Brapp, brapp…
