I will have to agree with symantec

Sorry, but at one point this tool was referred to as ghost. IMHO, a trasition to G4L, could indeed confuse *some* people initially that this is somehow an officially endorsed ghost product. And when people look for ghost partitioning or imaging in a search engine, this might come up. This does draw people in because it uses (or rather once used) the name of a popular tool that does the same thing. Symantec at least provided a very professional request. From the looks of it this has to be one of the most polite cease and desist notices I've ever seen.

My opinion is that the name should be changed to avoid any further conflict.
