The chipmaker has responded by claiming that Intel’s business is “unjustly enriched” by its use of the trademark ‘netbook’.The filing made by Intel said Psion was trying to benefit from the recent popularity of the term, not defend its creative rights. Psion, in responding, has certainly used fighting words:The challenge by Intel noted that Psion didn’t use the netbook for a full five consecutive years following its registration in the year 2000, thus nullifying its use to the term. Psion, in response, claims it was selling netBooks as late as 2003.The chipmaker Psion has cited sales of its netBooks as being as high as 1.7 million in 2005, 2 million in 2006, and $586,000 in 2007.For more info be sure to check out our original reporting of the Psion netbook controversy.Via CNet.
