Dell’s “Cloud Computing” Fiasco

Despite the generic nature of the term, “Cloud Computing,” Dell filed an intent-to-use application for a trademark registration for it. Nobody seemed to notice until a flurry of internet chatter roundly criticized Dell and the USPTO (example).

Despite the fact that the USPTO initially issued a notice of allowance, the egg seems to have hit the right face and the notice of allowance has been withdrawn.

Nobody seems to have heeded the call to stop a Finnish company from registering PWNAGE.
