HTC, porn company tussle over Vivid name

If you walk into an AT&T store and plan to pick up the 4G LTE-capable HTC Vivid, would you be confused into thinking this is part of a porn company? Well, Vivid Entertainment seems to think so, as it asking HTC to change the name or it will be sued.

HTC told The Verge that it doesn’t have any comments but it seems like an odd idea to me, as it’s clear to me that this device doesn’t come from the adult entertainment company, even if you can use Android for porn. Still, Vivid is very deep into technology and it too wants to protect its brands out there.

What do you think of this legal threat? Should HTC bend over to Vivid?
