Legal challenge to HTC's Facebook phone

Legal challenge to HTC's Facebook phone

Internet search engine ChaCha is threatening to sue HTC for using its name on its new Facebook phone.

According to the Independent, ChaCha plans to sue the mobile phone manufacturer as it owns the 'ChaCha' trademark in both the US and Europe.

The phone was launched earlier this month at Mobile World Congress.

In a similar development, Motorola is being sued for naming its forthcoming tablet XOOM by the online money-transfer company Xoom Corp.

Xoom Corp said in a statement: ‘To confuse and mislead consumers, Motorola without authorisation deliberately and unlawfully appropriated Xoom’s trade name and trademark rights.’
