European Resellers Caught in Lindows vs. Windows Crossfire

This isn’t really related to telephony today but there is some crossover which will become apparent very soon. This battle is reminiscent of the VoIP regulatory issues we are experiencing these days as well.

I support Lindows as I believe that they are being bullied by the software giant in Redmond, give them hell Michael!


Microsoft is putting European resellers in the middle of its trademark battles with Lindows, and in Sweden, Microsoft is winning.

Lindows isn’t Windows. Apparently plain old folks don’t know this, however, at least according to the City Court of Stockholm, Sweden. The court issued an injunction at Microsoft Corp.’s request on Dec. 10, barring San Diego-based Inc. from marketing its LindowsOS operating system in Sweden.

In its declaration, the City Court “prohibits, for the time until the case has finally settled or anything else has been decided, to use Lindows, and LindowsOS, as marks for products or services regarding operative systems.”

The injunction is the latest salvo in an increasingly nasty war in which Microsoft appears determined to quash the Lindows name permanently. “What we’re asking Lindows to do is to change its name,” says Microsoft spokesman Jim Desler. “It is that put these [European] resellers in a compromising position by their deliberate infringement on our trademark.”

Stop VoIP Regulation

What drives the governments to regulation? Lobbyists from the largest taxpaying Telcos and alike are applying pressure to the governments to tax VoIP. The regulators are listening because they know they too will be loosing revenue from lost taxes and they do not want to see an exodus from traditional telephony which is sure to happen if VoIP continues its rapid growth.

Jeff Pulver among other VoIP advocates are doing their best to combat the proposed taxation and regulation of VoIP by the FCC and other country regulators.
