Motorola sued for using Xoom

Motorola's Android powered Xoom tablet hit stores on Thursday, but is now being sued for trademark infringement. The plantiff is California-based Xoom Corp claiming that it has rights to the Xoom name.

Xoom Corp., which runs a money-transfer business, registered the xoom.com domain in 2003, and registered the Xoom trademark on December 14, 2004, according to the suit. Motorola filed an "intent-to-use" application of its own on October 26, 2010.

Xoom Corp. also says Motorola purchased the Xoom keyword for online searches, so searching "Xoom" on Google puts the official Motorola Xoom tablet Web site at the top of the results.
