out with the old (name that is)

Jamis Buck got a cease and desist letter about SwitchTower, his deployment management software. It seems that another company (I'm not linking to them, because I don't want to give them the publicity) has used the name for teleconferencing software and thought application deployment was too close to their niche.
|I'm sure it's not that they thought it was too close to their niche, it's that they thought it was higher in google results than their product, and they've got lawyers.|
I don't doubt that you're right. I was shooting for sarcasm, and obviously missed the mark.
|Whatever. Jamis probably didn't realize there was another app called SwitchTower. Probably benefits both parties that it was cleared up before it became commonplace.|
