Legal I recently joked that we might want to rename OSNews to CourtNews, and with each passing day that silly joke seems to become less silly. This week, it became clear that Psion Teklogix, the company behind various small computing devices back in the '90s, has started an all-out legal offensive to prohibit other companies from using the term "netbook".

Someone used the term "NetBook," run the for hills. Hah.

I don't see how this will hold up. It can be likened to suing someone for using the term "Laptop." This is laughable, at best.
