Go magenta or go home

Comments

A new take on the Engadget mobileDeutsche Telekom, parent company of a completely obscure, totally unknown, tiny little company called T-Mobile, sent a letter to Engadget Mobile claiming that the use of the color magenta in their logo constituted a trademark infringement and ever-so-politely asked them to stop using it. Early April Fool’s Day joke or not, Engadget fought back by making a few tiny changes to their logo and site layout. In a show of solidarity, a bunch of other blogs made similar changes. It remains to be seen whether this is an elaborate gag (in which case, thumbs up to everyone involved) or yet another example of absolutely ridiculous lawsuits.
