Psion Frees Up Patent on Netbook Term
Netbook, netbook, netbook. Ops, sorry folks, I just got carried away. It feels good to use a word without thinking that you might get a lawsuit from somebody who claims ownership to it. Maybe we should file a patent restriction to the word EeePCBlog so that no one can use it other than us.
Anyway, Blogee is reporting that Psion and Intel have finally reached an agreement over their dispute regarding the use of our beloved term – netbook. Although no details of the agreement were mentioned, Pierre of Blogee cited reliable sources confirming that indeed Psion will no longer restrict the usage of their “proprietary” term netbook.
Oh what a relief for all of us, netbook-loving blog writers and owners and possibly perhaps our beloved netbook outlets, right?
So, who do we thank for this news? Psion or Intel? Intel or Psion? Or probably us netbook lovers?
