ChaCha sues over naming of the new facebook phone by HTC
ChaCha Inc, the guys behind Chacha.com, a mobile search engine company were evidently none too impressed with HTC’s name choice for it’s latest Facebook phone, the ‘ChaCha’
According to the guys at techcrunch the company is suing HTC over its use of the name for fear that it could cause confusion. They feel that consumers will incorrectly assume that ChaCha Inc. has endorsed the phone. Not such a bad claim considering that ChaCha.com is in the mobile search industry business.
HTC is being asked for monetary damages and (obviously) that HTC chose another name for the phone to prevent trademark infringement. They seem to have a good case especially considering the fact that they trademarked their name way back in 2007.
