Rudy Huyn's 6Studio dreams are put on hold due to legal entanglement
Rudy Huyn, the resident Windows Phone developer who taps into the app market and releases content to fill gaps where official apps have yet to be released, has encountered a slight issue regarding the legality of his new company – 6Studio. Huyn has published a photo of legal documentation he recently received regarding a company filing a complaint against the branding of his company.
Beats Audio has kicked off a registration petition against Huyn, noting that the branding 6Studio is too similar to its own Beats Studio, which could cause confusion for consumers between Windows Phone apps under Huyn's name and its own branded accessories. It's unsure what factors the company has taken into account, be it similar logos or the actual wording.
This isn't the first time we've seen companies file complaints over controversial "trademarking".
