Arctic Cooling Reportedly Plans to Sue AMD for "Fusion" Trademark. Arctic Wants AMD to Stop
[font=Arial][left]Arctic Cooling, a well-known supplier of power supply units (PSUs), cooling systems and other PC accessories, has reportedly decided to sue Advanced Micro Devices in a bid to prohibit the chip company from using Fusion name to describe its chips that integrate x86 processing cores with Radeon stream processors on the same piece of silicon.[/left][/font]

[font=Arial][left]Arctic has been using Fusion brand to sell its power supply units for some time now and first applied for registration of the trademark back in early 2006. According to [url="http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Arctic-und-AMD-streiten-ueber-die-Marke-Fusion-1418534.html"]Heise.de[/url] web-site, Arctic attempted to negotiate with AMD, but the latter continues to use the word "Fusion" to classify its initiatives and products. The maker of PSUs, coolers and other products believes that usage of "Fusion" trademark infringes its rights.[/left][/font]

This seems petty to me. AMD first tossed the term around at about the same time (2006.) They aren't even direct competitors, and TBH I'd step carefully if I were AC --it would be dumb to lose your licence to produce aftermarket gear for AMD parts over a trademark temper tantrum.
