iCloud lawsuit dropped
Company set to change name as Apple tightens grip over iCloud name.
iCloud Communications has dropped its lawsuit against Apple over the use of its name. Instead, the VoIP service has decided to change its name to Clear Digital Communications.
The lawsuit, filed in June after Apple officially unveiled its iCloud offering, had aimed to get Cupertino to change the name of its service, as well as snag a decent amount of compensation.
Now though, the company has had a change of heart, saying it’s not interested in chasing Apple. There was no official line from the renamed firm, but at least Apple’s legal team can now focus on its other myriad courtroom battles.
