Legal Nero AG, a company with one of the most fitting names ever (can you imagine a company called Hitler or Stalin 2000 years from now?), has filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the MPEG-LA. The German technology company claims the licensing body has abused its monopoly power, and that is has not honoured agreements made with the US Department of Justice. There's some juicy stuff in here.

Not for us pesky Eastern Europeans for whom the name has a bit...more delicate sense, to say the least.
Now, if somebody in France or US would name their pet project "Hitler", that'd raise some eyebrows...

Errr... I'm sure that this as already been done. Be it only for the sake of making a Godwin point

(After all, NVidia copyrighted Fermi's name without anyone raising an eyebrow, so everything is possible in the world of naming)
