    Yep, and the family of Phillip K Dick is suing over the use of "Nexus" in the title of the new phone.

    Dont you love intellectual property law?

    Somebody needs to make a Venn diagram showing why it made sense to license the name. You know, all die-hard Star Wars fans are nerds. Most smartphone enthusiasts are nerds. There is some real overlap there.

    So licensing is stealing? :p

    It's not so much IP law -- you can't copyright words like that (though I am not an IP lawyer) -- as it is greed IMO.
