Microsoft Files New Case Against Lindows

In its latest legal move in the Dutch courts, Microsoft is asserting that the U.S. required copyright notice located in small text on the bottom of
some of the pages of the Web site will confuse consumers, Lindows said.

The international trademark battle between Microsoft and Lindows continues to generate work for lawyers and the courts, with the software giant once
again asking a Dutch court to fine Lindows EUR100,000 ($118,570) a day, the open source software vendor said Tuesday.

According to the San Diego company, Microsoft is charging that even though it has changed the name of its operating system product and corresponding
Web site to Linspire, users accessing the Web site are becoming confused by the Lindows company name in some of the pages on its site.
