Legal Just as Apple wraps up one lawsuit with Nokia, they have been hit with another one by a Phoenix based company named iCloud Communications. iCloud Communications, a VoIP vendor, claims that Apple's new iCloud causes confusion with competing products, and has harmed their image because anytime someone hears the name 'iCloud', they will now think of Apple instead of iCloud Communications.

I still like the fact that since the company started was when Apple was going iCrazy naming everything.

And I bet the company was quite happy to go "If we call ourselves iCloud, people will find us while looking for other Apple products. Yay"

And now with Cloud computing. iCloud seems pretty obvious naming scheme.

If anything the company has been riding off random hits for calling themselves something similar to Apples name for years.
