Hat tip to Disciples with Microphones.
It seems like Apple may be "cracking down" on use of their trademark words "pod" and "iPod". (Actually, they already own the rights to the proper noun "iPod", but they have applied for the common noun "pod".)
From Mac News World:
When Terry Wilson filed for trademark protection for her "Tightpod" laptop protectors, she received a cease-and-desist order. The order from Apple reads in part: "The Tightpod mark will inevitably cause consumer confusion as to the source of the products, and dilute Apple's famous iPod mark."
From The Listening Post at Wired Blogs:
Apple Computer has slapped Podcast Ready with a "cease and desist" letter, claiming that the terms "Podcast Ready" and "myPodder" infringe Apple's trademarks, and that they cause confusion among consumers.
What about us podcasters? Will we become simply "webcasters?" After all, many of us, myself included, have our podcasts on multiple "podcatchers" and/or "podreaders", including Apple's own iTunes. Oh well, until I hear otherwise from Apple, Christus Vincit still has a podcast.
