Motorola sued over Xoom name

Written by Nedim Hadzic

By Xoom Corp. from California
Xoom Corp. from California sued Motorola for trademark infringement over the name of Motorola’s recently launched tablet.

Xoom Corp. specializes in money transfers and it has filed a trademark suit with the US District Court for the Northern District of California. The company argues that the name will cause confusion among the company’s customers and holds Motorola responsible for trademark infringement, false designation of origin, unfair competition, false advertising, unfair business practices etc.

Apparently, the company registered the xoom.com domain in 2003 and registered the Xoom trademark in December 2004. By launching its Xoom tablet, Motorola has, as the filing claims, created a false association between its product and Xoom Corp. The company requests “temporary restraining order and/or preliminary injunction”. Furthermore, it wants Motorola to stop using Xoom name and, of course, it seeks damages.

We must admit that for a company that sues another for “unfair business practices”, they were pretty silent these past couple of months when even birds on the trees started chirping Xoom tablet name. That doesn't sound like fair business practice, but hey - what's common sense have to do with anything these days.
