YouView faces legal challenge to the use of its brand

So what will they call it in the future then?

I read that this morning, but as usual someone has replied first - so it's all your fault for raising a query.

It doesn't say what the brand name conflicts with. Is it You-Bend, U-Trap, or You Fool?

 

You -Tube was a piece of apparatus used in the labs at school (probably banned now through Health and Safety).

Or --- it's used in home brewing - not yet banned.

You-Tube isn't exactly an original name either.

It's the owners of a database connectivity system called "Your View" who have challenged the name.

Pleased to see a good reply. That clears that one up!

I'm not going to give any opinion. Seems you can't do, or say much without being challenged at the moment.

It's not even 'Yourview' it's 'Your View'. It is a bit ridiculous really.

There's more chance of me herding cats WHILST plaiting fog that of this very odd ruling being finally upheld. They are two completely different industries to start with....couple that with the fact that Your View is a niche product that will be known only in a small 'environment' and it just doesn't hold water...
