    DROID is a trademark of Lucasfilm Ltd. and its related companies. Used under license.

    found that at the bottom of the following page

    How to Transfer contacts from your phone to your Android device

    Are these :motdroidhoriz: :reddroid: :motdroidvert: :greendroid: the droids we're looking for?

    You can bet they are paying a pretty handsome price to use the name : )

    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.
