Microsoft Loses Courtroom Battle Over Windows Trademark -March 18, 2002

As most of you know, Microsoft filed a preliminary injunction suit against Lindows.com to immediately prevent us from using the terms “Lindows.com” and “LindowsOS.” Late Friday afternoon (March 15th), we received the judge's ruling on this preliminary injunction portion of Microsoft's suit.

Microsoft was denied in their early attempt to prevent us from using our name. In his opinion letter, agreeing with our assertions all along, the judge wrote,

"Lindows.com has presented sufficient evidence to rebut the presumption of validity of the Windows mark."

We are very happy that the court ruled solidly in our favor, but we realize that more battles lie ahead.

As always, thanks for your support. This victory is shared by each of you for your early support, as so many of you helped when called upon to provide information which ended up being very important to our case.
