Google and many others are sued for infringing on the Android trademark
On Halloween Day, 2007, Google filed with the PTO to trademark the name "Android" which was denied because of the possible confusion between Google's "Android" name and Eric Specht's "Android Data". So Google did what many companies do when the government puts the kibosh on a project-they ignored the Agency, going ahead and using the Android name anyway. Specht wants the defendants to be enjoined from using the Android name and he wants damages. One thing in his favor for sure is that this could be the record for the deepest pockets ever seen for a group of defendants. Now we know why the Android robot is green.
