    Even if that car had a similar name, there would have to be advertising claiming the car was actually a Boeing plane and that it can fly.
    So advertising is required to infringe on a copywrite? :) Thats not how it works.

    No but infringing on a copyright is required to infringe on a copyright. :D MS has no rights to the name "Lindows".

    Well, the law thinks differently.

    Directly benefiting from the reputation of another company through a common incorrect assumption is an unfair business practice. Lindash will loose it's case everywhere it is tried.
