Microsoft SkyDrive is the name of the cloud storage
feature offered by the Redmond based company and used by many Windows Phone owners. But thanks to a ruling in the U.K., Microsoft is going to have to change the name of the service. British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB) successfully argued in a U.K. court that the use of the "Sky" name in SkyDrive infringed on the British broadcaster's trademark.
Microsoft has said that it will not appeal the decision, and BSkyB will allow the Redmond based software giant to continue to use the SkyDrive name while it transitions to a new one. Both sides refuse to comment on an agreement made by the two firms that includes an undisclosed payment
from one of the companies to the other.
BSkyB provides various television content to British television viewers through its Sky One, Sky Sports and Sky Movies channels.
