ISYS Settles Trademark Suit with Google

Back in June, ISYS Technologies tried to throw a wrench into the whole Chromebook launch proceeding. Remember that?

The Salt Lake City firm wanted to put a halt on all shipments and marketing of Google’s Chromebooks because of alleged trademark violation.

In fact, ISYS sued Google and its marketing partners, Best Buy, Samsung Electronics, and Acer to prevent any sale of the Chromebook. ISYS said there was trademark infringement for ChromiumPC, a small computer running on the Chrome OS, which its subsidiary Xi3 Corp, planned to market.

That lawsuit has been settled and of course, the request for a ban on the promotion and sale of the Chromebooks was removed.

While no terms of the settlement has been divulged thus far, all effort to register “Chromium PC” has been abandoned and both Google and ISYS are reportedly “pleased” with the conditions of the deal.
