Is Sun’s use of the Java trademark fair?

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:51 am

As the owner of the http://JavaToolbox.com site, I have been contacted several times by a lawyer who asked me on behalf of his client - SUN Microsystems - to change the name of this site.

As you can tell from the name, this site references the development tools and libraries available for Java. Is a site like this a blatant counterfeit of the Java trademark? Is Sun abusing its trademark? How come Sun does not support community sites promoting its technologies?

Is this site a blatant counterfeit of the Java trademark, as they say? Isn’t this site about Java? Isn’t it clear for everyone that this site is not related to Sun?
