Sour apples for Napster-like start-up

Author: JT Smith

Bill Bales would rather switch than fight.

The Napster co-founder's second file-swapping start-up, AppleSoup, today said it will change its name
to "Flycode" following a complaint from Apple Computer.

The company received a cease-and-desist letter from Apple six weeks ago,
saying the name infringed its trademarks and demanding AppleSoup
discontinue the name and eventually hand the "applesoup.com" domain
name to the computer giant. The story is at CNet.
