WSJ Says Everyone Wants to Be a Geek

The Wall Street Journal says “Now that Everyone Wants to be a Geek, Lawyers Have Been Called”, a June 20th, 2011 article talks about how Best Buy is suing companies using the word “Geek” that they say conflicts with their trademark GeekSquad. GeekGeer has been trademarked since 1997. It’s kind of ridiculous and seems more like a publicity stunt. It would be like saying no one can use the word “window” because of Microsoft’s trademark on “Windows-tm”. Maybe they will sue GeekGeer and I can get some good publicity?
