"Not one to buck the trend, Mandrakesoft have been fined 70,000 and
told to change its name by a French court after a case brought by
King Feature Syndicate of America, who own the trademark of "Mandrake
the Magician" There have been no clues yet to what they'll change
their name to, but for those who can read French, there's an article
by the French IT news site Le Monde Informatique here. Update:
MandrakeSoft has a suspensive appeal that could last 3 years, at
least, and until a new trial they can keep their rights and domain
