ISYS Technologies Sues Google Over Trademark for Chromium

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

June 6 (Bloomberg) -- ISYS Technologies Inc., which manages intellectual property patents, said it sued Google Inc. claiming that the Web search company’s Chrome operating system violates the trademarks for ISYS’s Chromium Modular Computer.

ISYS said today in a statement that it seeks to stop Google and its marketing partners Amazon.com Inc., Best Buy Co., Samsung Electronics Co. and Acer Inc. from selling Chrome products “on or about June 15.”

ISYS said it holds patents for the Xi3 modular computer and filed a trademark registration for ChromiumPC with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last June. Google, based in Mountain View, California, has opposed the granting of the trademark, according to Salt Lake City-based ISYS.

Google’s operating system is based on its Chrome Web browser. The company is marketing a laptop, the Cr-48, which is the first computer to run the Chrome operating system.

Aaron Zamost, a Google spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
