ISIS mobile payments gets name change to Softcard

0. phoneArena 03 Sep 2014, 22:48 posted on

With the name ISIS still bringing up thoughts about a group of terrorists in the Middle East, the mobile payments company by the same name is getting re-branded. Owned by a conglomerate that includes Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T, ISIS will now be called Softcard. While the name has changed, the mobile payments firm will continue to offer the same tap to pay services. It will take a few weeks for the name change to take effect for all subscribers...

Yes. For them they were not terrorist but liberators.

Morro Islamic Liberation Front or MILF based on Philippines

how unfortunate
they can't sue the group that's copying their name.

...which strikes an idea!
perhaps companies hell-bent ruining each other can finance a terrorist group and have them use the trademarked/patented names of their rivals.

That's the old American way to deal with a problem: sue until you get your way.
