Vista Trademark, Copyrighting with IE Only, Dell Profits and Google Books

Friday 12th August 2005

Microsoft has bought the Vista trademark in Germany, reportedly for a six figure sum. I bet you wish you'd bought all the Vista domains now! Following on from the theme of rights, the Library of Congress is planning to only let you register copyrights with IE. Personally, I'd prefer to use Firefox, and I'm sure those on Linux would like to be able to register copyrights at all!

Dell has reported decent profits thanks to laptop sales. They're certainly doing better than Time and Tiny - in fact, that might help boost sales even further! Finally, Google has temporarily stopped its plans for online books.
