Cisco's General Counsel blogs about dispute with Apple over iPhone trademark

January 23, 2007
Post by Blog Staff

In an interesting PR move, Mark Chandler, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Cisco Systems, has posted an informative description of the Apple-Cisco iPhone trademark lawsuit on one of Cisco's blogs. Commentary on the blog, while mixed, appears to be predominantly positive, particularly by those who did not understand Cisco's legal position when the lawsuit was announced. This could be a foreshadowing of the use of blogs in the future: to influence public opinion regarding a pending case, thereby putting more pressure on the opposing party. At this point, at least, Mr. Chandler appears to have made a few converts to his company's position. Commentary at LexBlog and Scobleizer.
