« Dassault: Chance of Lawsuit Against V6? | Main | CAD Editor Passes Away »

The orange rectangle nonsense has provided lots of laughs for many of us.

Being the very first one to have 'logo-ized' the AutoCAD crosshairs (which was not an Autodesk registered trademark, or used as a mark of any kind by Autodesk at the time), as soon as Autodesk saw my website and the crosshairs, they promoptly 'adopted' it in everything from the AutoCAD application icon, to product packaging and various other published marketing materials.

That fact that Autodesk can sue DSSW over an orange rectangle, makes me wonder if I could have sued Autodesk for using my trademark?

Children will be children.
