News - SparkFun Gets a Cease and…
about 10 years ago
that's a bloody joke, they should just f*off. A law firm trying to make money.
SI is the owner of several trademarks, e.g. SPARC, ULTRASPARC, SPARC64, SPARCengine etc.. IF they had a trademark on SPARCFUN, it might be confusing, but unfortunately, that would contradict their "serious" (read: "less fun") business image... but they don't, so that's bollocks.
Secondly, SPARC as Scalable Processor Architecture doesn't have anything to do with Sparkfun as in sparking fun ideas.. thanks.
Finally, if they seriously want to tell the press (and the world) that they produce server products that have similar properties as 20MIPS microprocessors... well, sure... go ahead then.
No public wish lists :(
