T-Mobile Asks Engadget Mobile to Stop Using Magenta
In yet another display of corporate legal idiocy, T-Mobile parent Deutsche Telekom sent a letter to Weblogs, Inc.'s Engadget Mobile asking them to stop using the color magenta in their logo. The letter states T-Mobile uses the color magenta in its logo and, as a result, people might somehow become confused as to what T-Mobile does and what Engadget Mobile does.
I'd like to sit in one of these corporate lawyers' offices one day just to observe their mentality and how they can assume the general public is so idiotic they can't tell the difference between a mobile carrier and a website. Mostly, I'd like to look these lawyers in the eyes and ask, "Are you fucking serious?"
In case Deutsch Telekom's lawyers have suddenly suffered from some form of color-challenged dyslexia, Engadget Mobile was kind enough to put together a handy chart clearly explaining the differences between T-Mobile and Engadget Mobile.
