Smartbook AG gets upset with people using the term "smartbook"

Apparently Smartbook AG has a multinational trademark on the word "smartbook" -- good for them. Although they are well justified in defending manufacturers against using the term for competing products, they have also apparently decided to go after media outlets and even some bloggers that are generically using the word to describe next generation devices under the moniker of "smartbooks".

Interesting marketing strategy.

Here's a link to the source about the smartbook controversy on TechCrunch.


(yup, I'm happy to help)
