Aimster changes name

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 25 Jan 2002 1:55

Aimster, a P2P software maker that piggybacks with AOL's Instant Messenger, has changed its name to Madster and gave the rights to the name Aimster to AOL.
Change of name was made because of a lawsuit that AOL filed against Aimster in last year. AOL complained to an arbitration panel that found in May, 2001 that Aimster's name violates AOL's AIM trademark and that Aimster has to give up the name.

Aimster is still in trouble, because of the lawsuit recording industry and movie industry filed against it in last year.
