Brand confusion? Porn company may sue over HTC Vivid
posted by Michael H. / Nov 16, 2011, 3:55 PM
HTC has responded simply by saying, "We are reviewing the complaint and don't expect to have any further comment until it is resolved." However, we would really like to see more of an explanation from Vivid Entertainment, because we cannot understand how anyone could get an Android smartphone confused with a porn company. Perhaps someone may think that the phone has been sponsored by the company, and complain when there are no adult films pre-loaded on the device?
We'll bring you more as it happens, because this story is shaping up to be hilarious.

Omg this is the stupidest bs ever. How does vivid cause brand confusion I'm pretty sure that an android phone isn't going to cause confusion. Multi mil/billionaire phone company vs random porno company nobody has ever heard of? Yeah htc going to win by a landslide

The real connection between the two is that you can watch VIVID videos on the Vivid phone. My buddy at work bought this and on just the HSPA+ network he get 13.5 mbps download. Great speed for watching those vids.

more like they wanted there share of money htc does well so why not get money because a phone has same name as adult porn company, its like star trek trying to sue samsung for the nexus because nexus was mentioned in the star trek generations movie.
